Kalup Linzy: Keys to Our Heart
Here is a clip from Keys to Our Heart by Kalup Linzy, winner of a 2007 Guggenheim fellowship for video. "Linzy's best known work is a series of video art pieces satirizing the tone and narrative approach of television soap opera. Linzy performs most of the characters himself, many of them in drag. He also performs many of the same characters on stage." (-W)
"Keys To Our Heart is a short black and video written and directed by Kalup Linzy and stars the artist along with Joshua Seidner, Alison Folland, and Lawanda Hodges. It will debut in late October at Prospect 1, New Orleans. OVA will mark Linzy's feature film debut. Ova will tell the story of Katessa, an aspiring actress working her way towards super stardom. Both projects are funded by Creative Capital. Keys also received partial funding from the US Biennial, Prospect 1, New Orleans"
