“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.
What does a society cling to when its structures exist only in remembrance of unity? Cohort 707 depicts women who face this question in the shelter of a fallen community. When dirt becomes home, the only things worth valuing are hunger and fear which keep these women alive along with the strength they find in one another.
