Person(a) Short Film – Audience FEEDBACK From Feb. 2019 LA Film Festival

PERSON(A), 5min., USA, Dance

Directed by Cameron Kostopoulos

Inspired by the works of Jackson Pollock, PERSON(a) explores themes of identity, character, and the human psyche while simultaneously questioning the boundaries between performance and art. Featuring a dance between flesh and plastic, PERSON(a) is at first playful and provocative, while also building its own uneasiness to mirror the dynamic of its waltz. The lines between the mask and the masquerade, the self and the psyche, and the person and persona are questioned, culminating in a transmission of identity that beckons audiences to ask: “What does it mean to be me?”
