Prime Time (2017)
HD Video, 22 minutes (looped)
Prime Time focuses on a group of older gay men who are part of a social society called ‘Prime Timers’ as they undertake an organised cruise. The filming of the ship’s interminable journey towards the horizon becomes an allegory for the search these men undertake by coming together to enrich their lives through communal activity. Prime Time examines what it means to be in the prime of one’s life and seeks to challenge the hyper-visibility of youth, and its primacy as a measure of desirability, to the exclusion of older bodies.
