Private I's (2012)



 

 

The film follows the construction, eruption, corruption and destruction of the masculine self and other. It investigates the boundaries of masculinity, and the forces that operate on the male body, while borrowing from different cultures and modalities.  The movement language can be traced to traditional forms and concepts integral to martial arts. It translates it into a contemporary individualized expression in different ways, while counterbalancing it with the mundane “every day” gestures of male bonding.

Director of Photography: Ram Shweky
