Dir. Doris Wishman
1968, USA, 75 min
No one will ever make movies like Doris Wishman made movies. One of the most prolific women filmmakers in the history of American cinema, writer-director-editor Wishman created DIY collisions between surrealism and exploitation that feel like they materialized from an alternate universe. Indecent Desires – Wishman’s horror-tinged, sexploitation mindwarp and a crown jewel in her ultra-prolific career – follows Zeb (Michael Alaimo) as he discovers a doll and ring with voodoo-like powers in a trashcan, allowing him to control the sensations experienced by Ann (Sharon Kent). Perverse, dreamlike, and surprisingly complex, Indecent Desires has been newly restored in 2K from its original 35mm camera negative.
