Short Experimental Film 2005/6 –
This film is created as close as possible to the rules of the DOGMA Manifesto 1995. The experiment in this short film was to create the illusion, as far as possible, that every shot was taken from a camera that exists in the world of the characters.
Rae, a self confessed mysandrist and scopophiliac, battles her demons by making herself the centrepiece of a self-devised experiment in voyeurism. Until one day, a meeting with a stranger compels the conclusion of her experiment: a fragile equation between confession, exposure and trust.
Rae, a self confessed mysandrist and scopophiliac, battles the demons in her mind by making herself the centrepiece of a self-devised experiment in voyeurism. Using the virtual reality of personal webcams, and a reverse gender ‘peeping tom’ website, she maps the diary of her psyche and exorcises her obsession with video and mysandry, by cam- recording men from windows and stairwells in the night, to then offer up the footage to online voyeurs.
One day she dares to target a middle aged man whose appearance begins to trigger visceral memories of her dark secret that compels Rae to the conclusion of her experiment; a fragile equation between confession, exposure and trust.
NOTE on translation for international festivals – The term “jailbait” is slang, refering to “sexually attractive” (usually) female persons whom are under the age of consent for sexual activity.
