I Am The Tigress

Documentary Film, AT/DE/US 2021, digital, 80 min, eOmdU

Tischa Thomas is destined for the stage. In the course of her transformation to bodybuilder and goddess, the forty-seven-year-old U.S.-American has toughened her body, and at the same time, also her soul. I Am The Tigress shows her switching from one stage to the next—whether as dominatrix, bodybuilder, grandmother, or girlfriend. In the portrait, opposites merge; moments of capitulation and victory, everyday life and state of emergency blend. The tigress prowls through extremes.
