Drama • 6m 30s
A woman tries to clean her apartment, but her unkempt lover won't let her. Sara Silva directs and stars in “Dirt,” an experimental portrait of a messy relationship built with layers of spontaneous energy and complex threads of dissatisfaction. The two women wake up on the couch to find a dirty apartment. One of them is fixated on keeping things clean while her girlfriend taunts her that “it’s pointless.” When a dildo arrives in the mail, the tidy one takes it for a spin but it doesn’t end well, bringing her back under the sway of her lover. Silva’s film has a dreamlike quality to it, not quite real but recognizable in terms of emotions and frustrations, and it registers both literally (about cleanliness, sexuality), and metaphorically (about societal problems that some try to tackle while others avoid).
