Yes, God, Yes
In the short film, ‘Yes, God, Yes’, fifteen-year-old Alice has always been a good Catholic, but when an innocent AOL chat turns unexpectedly racy, she finds herself suddenly obsessed with masturbating.
Alice explores masturbation with some trepidation, all the while confronted with drastic anti-sex messages in school. Some of the most comic scenes occur in class, where the priest tells students bizarre things such as “guys are like microwave ovens; ladies are more like conventional ovens”. In little more than 10 minutes, this film gets at the hypocrisy present many religions and adult life in general – the idea that a lot of people don’t practise what they preach. In 2019, a feature film was made using this film as its base.
