Sass Squat

•November 3, 2009 • 1 Comment

Sass Squat is a short portrait of a squatted three-story row house in West Philadelphia. Five years ago, the house was damaged from a fire next door that  took a life. The house became vacant after the landlord failed to repair the damages from the fire. Soon after, a group of friends began living in the house and making their own repairs. The burned house next door still stands in ruins.

Spaces have different lives and layers. When a space is reconstructed, new layers are added, but remnants of what once was there still remain under the surface. This piece examines the significance of these different layers and of reclaiming underutilized space during tough economic times through an exploration of a unique living space and the people who call it home.

I Guess I’m Never Going to get to Vegas is a short portrait of Florence Sterling, who passed away from lung cancer two years ago, told through the stories and memories of her lover of over 40 years, Aileen. This piece explores illness, love, and loss through the relationship between two elderly Jewish lesbians who came out before the emergence of a visible gay rights movement.

This is a piece of a larger documentary piece.
