Orientated around an erotic and stylised telephone conversation between two characters, Twisted Pair explores a period of ten years following 1975 as defined in the west by the rise of neoliberal ideology, the first cases of HIV/AIDS, and the privatisation of telecommunications. A subjective narrator guides the viewer through a web of historical references and an absurdist dialogue assembled from pop music and queer cinema, set within various cinematic conventions: the split-screen, the script, an intermission, the rolling credits. Twisted Pair considers how this period of change affected how we consider structures of power, messy histories and queer identity.
