Originally conceived as just another moment for the family video archive, Sadie Wrestling documents a mock wrestling bout between Galloway and his 6-month old daughter Sadie. Galloway’s wife manoeuvres the camera.
Around this time Galloway received a gift from friend Gerrard McCarthy; a commissioned song by cult US musician Jad Fair detailing aspects of Galloway’s newfound fatherhood. The song provides the soundtrack.
The video presents father daughter bonding, wary of the epochal context; our medias love affair with stories of paedophilia. The video challenges the viewer to know the difference.
