David Bromberg's "Sammy's Song" tells the story of a young man, Sammy, who is taken to a brothel in the south of Spain to lose his virginity. He has a drink and then he selects a girl. In the bedroom, the girl tries to have Sammy make love to her with her clothes on, but he refuses. When she takes her clothes off, she reveals burns and scars from a car accident. Sammy does make love to her but all he can see are the burns and the scars.
"Sammy's Song" is a reminder that tragedies, flaws, secrets and horrors are a part oflife. And some scars we carry forever.
In this series, a model, Nadia, plays the part of the Spanish prostitute. Her bloody scars are, thankfully, the result of some hastily applied theatrical makeup.
