DISTORTED SHOULDS

year: 2020

duration: 6:09 min

colour / sound / digital

The peace of mind I, perhaps surprisingly, experienced during lockdown months, brought around reflections about the past and present, about words, people, and my place amongst them, an individual's place in the society of convenances, expectations, and various forms of manipulation.

 

DISTORTED SHOULDS visually and musically, through various distortions, explores disparities between codes of morality and their use in conscious and unconscious manipulation, the concepts of freedom, the striving for self-improvement, which in the end can only be achieved in the way that arises directly from the seeker, not from generalised rules.

 

Film shot entirely in my garden during the lockdown months.

Received a Special Mention in the Bertha DocHouse "Re-emergence" competition.
