MOVIE LOVE, a short film:
(for Nicolas Roeg)

A man and a woman exit the dark of a movie theatre in each other's arms, enjoying themselves under the spell of the movie they have just seen. Stopping to read and admire the poster for their movie, they strike the pose of the lovers on the poster before they stroll out into the night with all its beautiful and glittering cinematic promise. On the sidewalk in front of the theatre the man slips and finds that he has stepped in dogshit. The romantic post-movie moment - like the twilight consciousness between sleeping and waking - is shattered as the man shouts at a person walking a dog away from the mess. The owner of the dog turns and reveals that he is blind.
