Give Me Pity!
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Give Me Pity!, dir. Amanda Kramer, USA 2022, 80 min., English

Amanda Kramer’s latest is a psychedelic, paranoid ode to musical divas of the ’70s and ’80s. In Give Me Pity!, Kramer’s penchant for theatricality and artificiality is the backdrop for the story of Sissy St. Claire, who, in the film, is making her television special debut. As Sissy sings, dances and communes with her adoring audience, we begin to see cracks in the armour of her persona, while a masked figure stalks her from the back of the production’s set, threatening to expose her weaknesses.
