Feisto - a video by Frank Moore
On the surface, it is your standard story of a clothes designer who finds a creature (guess who!) definitely not from HERE who totally turns her life upside down. But what it really explores is the warm playing erotic small sexual messy fun turned-on reality between two people ... an ice cream cone melting throughout life!

Awarded "BEST OF FESTIVAL - FEATURE"
Berkeley Film & Video Festival

"I see so many levels beyond the surface story. The biggest for me is the link between fun and creativity. Related to that is how much our concern with conformity causes us to miss so much. Clearly, there's also the story of not assuming that someone who is different has little to nothing to offer. You can see the joy in her whole being when she is with the creature. Slowly even Chip realizes the folly of defining ourselves and dreams by the expectations of others. Bravo, Frank. A truly moving video on so many levels."
– Don Hanson, Vimeo


" REVOLUTIONARY ... CHALLENGING ... DIFFICULT ... INTIMATE."
– Audience reactions to FEISTO at Los Angeles screening at The New York International Independent Film and Video Festival

"The more I think about Feisto the more I really like it and think it's an important film in many ways."
– Maria Kazalia, writer

"While never comfortable and quite often challenging viewing, Moore's work manages to simultaneously laugh at and insight compassion for his struggles to find love, to have sex, to communicate..."
– Alex MacKenzie, curator Blinding Light Cinema, Vancouver, BC Canada

"(FEISTO) is a sometimes startling, frequently funny, and occasionally just head-scratching look at the sexuality of someone society tends to think of as
neutered."
– Ken Eisner, reviewer, The Georgia Straight, Vancouver's News & Entertainment Weekly, April 2002
