Crutchmans tapes are brought to you exactly as they come out of the box. No editing or adjusting unless its to brighten dim lighting. This is one of many tape he filmed on a trip to China to attend a polio conference. All the time he was there, he made sure to keep that camera rolling and boy, did he get some incredible Candid video.
It’s wonderful having Crystal back. She is the only woman we’ve found who uses hand crutches to walk. Her polio ravaged leg have never allowed her to stand upright, instead, she must crouch down and hop with every step.
Today she wakes and leaves her bed to the bathroom to shave her legs. Upon returning to the bedroom, she lotions her legs and then lowers to the floor to crawl to the living room. With her legs bound with a belt she struggles to try to stand to get a drink, then must resort to dragging a chair into place, lift herself up onto it and then even higher up onto the counter. She returns to the floor, to her bedroom and back to the living room before leaving. Her unique qualities always captivate and turn a man turgid.
Luna is poetry in motion. each thing she does, she does knowing we’re watching and anticipating every thing she’ll do. How she lifts her legs by hand, how she swings them over her wheels, her transfers, her slender fingers rolling down her feet and toes. Each moment, methodically choreographed to leave us breathless and wanting more. From her bedroom to living room, transfers to and from her wheelchair and furniture, floor struggles and stocking and shoe removal; everything is done just to leave you breathless.
