Factory Secrets explores the depth of expressions inherent and ignored in the often limited view of the female body as presented often as un-moving two-dimensional commodity or sexualized object via misogynist or pornographic juxtaposition-ing. The female body moving here tells a story of resistance, empathy, grief, and self-realization. It illuminates the natural beauty and emotion that movement exhibits.
Release Me, But Don’t Let Go, utilizes a pair of moving female legs/feet in various associations with gravity and space to tell the ancient stories of longing, conflict, jubilance, harmony, death and rebirth while in relationship to other.
This is the first time the films will be screened indoors for a seated audience. The films were originally designed to be projected onto outdoor surfaces for passer-bys or as part of the entire live performance production of Auto Mobile Body Works.
Film credits include camera, direction and production by Stefanie Weber, editing and additional production support by Michael Sinopoli of Greylock Productions in Lee, MA and music by Thomas White/Electric Soft Parade in Brighton, England.
