Full of admiration and respect for its subject-matter, FLESH MEMORY is a very well-executed film.
Finley Blake is a cam girl: she does sexual exhibition on Internet, in front of her webcam, for a living. She is 33 years old, lives alone in an isolated house in Austin, Texas and is attempting to reclaim joint custody of her son – who has been withdrawn from her because of her occupation.
The documentary FLESH MEMORY follows Finley for a few days in her both solitary and crowded life, which is mostly oriented toward screens – her privileged interface with the outside world.

I’ve known Finley Blake since 2005. We met in New York by chance, in a concert hall. At that time, she was 22, selling shoes and living in Brooklyn. Our only means of contact was Myspace -- Facebook did not yet exist at that time. Back in Paris, I immersed myself in the blog she did: a fascinating and intimate diary, beaded with sexual fantasy micro-stories, delivered to the eyes of the entire world.
