Synopsis

Defiance explores the difficulty of exploring lesbian desires in sexist and homophobic society. The audio track is composed with a cacophonic homophobic voiceover, while the visual track resists this oppression by presenting a long take of two lovers embracing. The tension is broken at the end with the lasting effects of the visual and the slow fade of the audio track, promoting the idea that love defies hatred.
