Brigitte, is a video portrait that looks at the hardening of the heart exposed to violence. It deals with Brigitte’s confusion of feelings around a date rape while in holiday in Egypt in 1992 and the love story with her perpetrator. Her story includes the Egyptian Mafia, telephone conversations with enigmatic secret agents and inexplicable events around her house in Greenwich,CT. Even more than the plot’s details, I am concerned about finding a structure that mirrors Brigitte's feelings, so viewers can hold, confront and reflect on Brigitte’s persona.
