Silver directs and performs all the roles in this raucous and hilarious music video rendition of Lynyrd Skynyrdâ€™s Freebird, the infamous Southern rock anthem for an entire generation of 1970s male youth. In this spoof of straight mass culture, Silver flips ironically between roles; from a lesbian proudly proclaiming her sexuality at the Academy Awards, to an in-concert Coors-drinking Ronnie Van Zant, and, finally, to a black-lace lesbian lounge swinger celebrating the wild, colorful world of â€œoutâ€ visibility. Silver draws upon an amazing array of found footage and special effects to bend genders and genres with spectacular visual delight.
