Passage

Edition 2021
13' - 2020
Director: Ann Oren
A foley artist creates sounds for a film starring a dressage horse and dissolves into his own imitation. The film reflects on the boundaries between the human and the animal as well as on fictional gender roles and their transcendence.
A foley artist creates sounds for a film starring a dressage horse and dissolves into his own imitation. As the character in the film, played by the gender fluid performer Simon(e) Jaikiriuma Paetau, seems to transform into a gender-defying centaur, the film reflects on the boundaries between the human and the animal as well as on fictional gender roles and their transcendence. Passage also alludes to Eadweard Muybridge’s pre-cinematic experiments with horses.
