  Lucy continues to provoke the biological edge of the body with her new film MAKE YOUR MAKER, taking on the domain of genetic manipulation and human cloning. She delivers a world where clones are edible; their sensory effects absorbed through the body. Written and directed by Lucy McRae, MAKE YOUR MAKER responds to the idea that ‘Food and the body are inseparable’; a dialogue developed alongside Nahji Chu, the savant owner of Australian cult restaurant MissChu. We see a lone woman fastidiously prepare and distill human body parts, using her own body as a test bed, fusing gender and blending ego like a chef constitutes food. Her laboratory references the wet and somewhat grotty kitchens found in dimsum markets; the basement housing her inventions. We see her curiousity in process, operating an assembly line of kitchen appliances big enough to steam a body. Duplicates are cut precisely with facial cutters, dissected according to her mathematical matrix, sealed and then packaged for consumption.
