"I think I love you but I have chosen darkness"

This Film/video project focuses on female blood suckers and began with my archival research on Alzbeta Bathoryova (aka the Bloody Countess) of the late 1500’s, whose tale is one of blood lust and murder. I was interested in her as an historical female figure whose story was transcribed mostly by male writers and male historians. The project explores the construction and representation of violent women focusing on the relationship between vamp and vampire.
