Nothing Gets Crossed Out
Myritza Castillo-Irizarry
(Puerto Rico)
Duration: 00:02:00

Nothing gets crossed out, Myritza Castillo-IrizarryThe video Nothing gets crossed out proposes a portrait of a man in sports. The main character in the video is a frustrated and pathetic man that we really don’t know but with whom a man can be related to him in the real life. The piece shows the fragility and vulnerability of a figure of a man. Men as a figure of perfection have been idealized since the Greeks. The perfection and precision are two words that describe exercise, in this case tennis; the main character never executed properly the exercise and finished it. At the end the character end it the game of tennis in the most expected and common way, breaking the racquet. This shows an intrinsic instinct of a barbaric brutality and violence of a trifling action.

S21: The Khmer Rouge Killing Machine 2003
A Film by Rithy Panh

Play, Alessandra Arno“This video investigates the human conditions, contradictions and unawareness. It can be approached according to several interpretations At a first look, we meet a man gesticulating in an empty space, as if involved in a game, while a background of singing children can be heard…
In fact, we are facing a fomer khmer rouge who is re-acting the very same gestures he used to do in the jail where he was working in his youth. The sound we’re listening to is just the march of war usually sang by the children after being drilled to kill in the Cambodian fields.
A parallel does arise between the children’s games and the actual childhood of the ex-khmer rouge which was spent on committing the most heinous crimes with no consciousness at all.
The pictorial image of the video is a tribute to one of the few survivors, who was a painter at the time and is now showing what was happening inside the killing fields of Phon Phen – now a Museum – during the Pol Pot age.”

There are caricatures…, Véronique SapinI live in the Middle East and every days we can see in the media how the men, in this part of the world, don’t understand and cant imagine that a man can be different than their stereotyped ideas about man and his honour. They are bound by these stereotypes and they get bogged down of them.

I draw much more than I ought to draw because it brings me back you
Dorte Jelstrup
Duration: 00:02:00
Directors: Dorte Jelstrup and Caroline Sascha Cogez
Editor: Caroline Sascha Cogez
Scenography: Dorte Jelstrup
DoP: Sebastian Winterø
Gaffer: Jacob Østergaard
Music: Dorte Jelstrup and Jens Runge
Producer: Dorte Jelstrup
Copyright: Dorte Jelstrup, 2009
Acknowledgments: Stage 7, UitchIscratch, Katja Phillip, Albert Elias Grøndahl, Timelines, Anders Sune Berg and The National Workshops for Arts and Crafts
Supported by: The Danish Arts Council

I draw much more than I ought to draw because it brings me back you, Dorte Jelstrup My video deals with the representation of the male nude in the classic medium of drawing and from the point of view of a “feminine gaze” of longing and desire. In the act of drawing I relate the male nude to the concept of beauty which is traditionally associated with femininity. My video therefore tends to blur or subvert historically established notions of masculinity and tries to materialise and underline new “feminine” ways of looking up on the male nude as an object of longing and desire. My video also deals with a prior loss of the desired male nude and points towards the feminine creativity and the formation of symbolic meaning in the act of drawing as a possible compensation for the loss.
