Still from Ghosted by Monika Treut


Monika Treut is an independent German filmmaker who has explored female and lesbian sexuality in her films since her debut feature, the controversial Seduction: The Cruel Woman, in 1985. She followed it up with the coming-out tale Virgin Machine in 1988. She turned to documentary in 1992 with Female Misbehavior, four portraits of ‘bad girls’ including Camille Paglia, and made the acclaimed Gendernauts in 1999, which portrayed a group of transgendered people in San Francisco. In 2001, Treut made Warrior of Light, a documentary on Yvonne Bezerra de Mello, an artist and human rights activist who works with slum children in Rio de Janeiro. In 2002, Treut travelled to Taiwan and became fascinated by the country. She made the documentary Tigerwomen Grow Wings about three generations of women, and recently returned to fiction with Ghosted, an unconventional love story between a German artist and a Taiwanese woman set between Hamburg and Taipei.

Virginie Sélavy, editor of Electric Sheep Magazine, talked to Monika Treut during the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, where Ghosted was screened.
