Short Film: HIS PARTY, 4min., USA, Dance

B61e58dbe5 poster

“His Party” is a short film following six women in a 1950’s home setting. This movement infused short film explored the trope of Romantic Paternalism, a past societal norm deeming women as fair, gentle creatures to be gently handled and cared for, through exploring the isolated roles of women in the 1950’s. Amidst the controlling, dictator-like masculine energy of the household, the women scramble and writhe in their restrictive areas of the home while attempting to maintain an imposed level of cheeriness and normalcy.

Short Film: SONDER, 9min., USA, Dance

5d495f4e1d poster

Sonder: n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed. – Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

This film was inspired by a feeling of helplessness in a chaotic time; not knowing where to channel our efforts, our grief, our frustration.
