"Glove Story" is the second collaboration between choreographer Dana Ruttenberg and director Oren Shkedy. Their first film “Private I's” screened at more than 20 festivals and Art exhibitions world wide, and earned them numerous awards.
Glove Story explores the notion of personal space and the all-too-often invasion into it. It asks the question: what are the psychological, physical and social repercussions of treating bordersasmere suggestions? This question echoes much stronger in the local political climate of our region and of our times. The film follows four characters through a series of hyper-realistic topographies and architectural settings in which, like in Sartre's “No Exit”, individuals are one another's heaven or hell. The gloves are the recurring object, a thin line of protection – which also gives its wearer “permission” to penetrate another's space unharmed.
