Make Her See
“Make Her See" (working title), is a mixed-media short documentary that follows conversations between me, the director, and three female filmmakers (role models) as we navigate paths of meaning and talk about our experiences and roles as female filmmakers of today.
My artistic goal for this project is to produce a mixed media short documentary and doing this by turning a female filmmaker’s social and emotional worlds into artistic materiality (universes). I aim to dramatize the stories of three female filmmakers and thereby visualize complex emotions through the use of mixed media storytelling (which includes the combination of animation and live-action). My aim when doing this is to create a bridge between the interviewees’ social worlds and my own visual worlds, finding an authentic way to visually reflect their stories as artists and female filmmakers.
Below a series of pictures from the first shoot / conversation with the multi-award-winning animation filmmaker Anita Killi at her farm and studio in Dovre, Norway. The first round of development is funded by Midtnorsk Filmsenter.
