While Puck dares to do wild things, such as queer post porn and wrestling, her creator artist is often insecure and vulnerable. In A BODY LIKE MINE, an artist struggles with the discrepancy between herself and her alter-ego character Puck, who is often misunderstood, judged, fetishized. Pucks activism consists of her visibility as a proud Black person and of staging herself as part of images that bodies like hers traditionally have been banished from. Puck dares controversial positions, such as the right to perform as a “sub” in a BDSM context, without being forced to justify this, only due to her skin color. Through the collaboration between director Maja Classen and Puck A BODY LIKE MINE delivers refreshing and unconventional perspectives on current discussions about ethnicity and gender.
