Pieced together from a decade's worth of personal archives, Fox Maxy's Gush delivers a kaleidoscopic look at horror and survival. The film weaves through a stream-of-consciousness meditation on the impact of sexual violence and healing through collective joy. At first, it is a fiery manifesto on the sovereignty of land and the body, and then an ode to the bonds of friendship before morphing into a celebration of what it means to endure. Maxy's film is a work defiantly without limits, refusing to be categorised. After building a body of work that established her as an artist to watch, Maxy's feature film debut is a continuation of her signature free style and abundant approach to the medium.
