Chicago-based avant garde filmmaker James Fotopoulos directs Migrating Forms, a minimalist exercise in sexual dysfunction. A woman with blonde hair (Rebecca Lewis) and a stone-faced man (Preston Baty) have anti-erotic sex, smoke cigarettes, and drink water. They are watched by the man's cat. The scene repeats itself while each parter develops a growth on their back and the bathroom fills up with bugs. Shot in 16 mm black-and-white, Migrating Forms won the Best Feature award at the 2000 New York Underground Film Festival.
