The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye: A Story of the Pandrogyne
I plan to see this. While checking out the previews I got to thinking of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. I also thought of the theory-laden film High Art, a favorite when it came out and one that I have been feeling like revisiting lately.
Lovers of industrial music will undoubtedly find this documentary especially intriguing as it features Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, the founding member of Throbbing Gristle. The life story of P-Orridge is one of unique pursuits and brave edification. The one term that will stand out to most will be the term pandrogyne and how it gets contextualized in the actual lives and love story of two individuals.
