A film of unfulfilled dreams. Naomi Uman removed the objects of desire from a 1970s porn movie. Using nail polish remover and bleach, she made the women’s bodies invisible, frame by frame. What’s left is a phantom. The upstanding Romeos grasp nothing but emptiness and are left alone with their manhood.
