Mixed-media and performance artist Narcissister serves as both director and subject of this documentary. Through her unabashedly erotic and often humorous performances, she showcases her spectacle-rich approach to explorations of race, gender, and sexuality. In addition to going behind her iconic mask, Narcissister shares details of her personal life. From growing up as a mixed-race child to her complex relationship with her mother, she addresses how these circumstances compelled her to create her performance character. Embodying various organs of the body throughout her stage show, Narcissister seeks to challenge traditional politics of femininity and womanhood.
