UNBIND Short Film – Audience Feedback from April 2017 Female Film Festival

AUDIENCE FEEDBACK VIDEO:

  MOVIE POSTERUNBIND, 5min, Australia, Dance/Experimental
Directed by Mathilde Neau

Jim is a man of great stature, imposing man, muscular, wild. His presence fills the room. The sound of his body, his breath fills the space. We feel his anxiety and discomfort. A challenge to confront.

Director Statement

The essence of this film, is build on the idea of achieving through accompaniment and sharing. The exchange of ideas and the mix of two conceptions are more exalting and constructive than on your own. Life worth being lived with others. It is about finding an answer to a problem by asking for help, or accepting the other to help you.

The want for Unbind was to erase all kind of distracting elements that usual way of communication implies. Here, the body language is a strong expression, through the presence of Jim and through dance. Finding another language for human expression, as powerful medium as the speech. The sounds has a particular attention to express the different steps Jim goes through and the obstacles he has to confront.

The handicap of Jim, his blindness implies facing important questioning in life. It is focusing on different ways of receipting the world and its surroundings. Ratings

The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes. Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival. This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way. When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival. A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
