Teaser of "Nuisible" ("Pest"), a short film by Tom Haugomat & Bruno Mangyoku
Music by Sacha Galperine.
This 11 min short film was directed by Tom Haugomat & Bruno Mangyoku, produced by Cube Creative & les films d'Avalon, with the support of Arte, CNC and SACEM.
"Nuisible" will be screened on Arte in june 2013.
A quick editorial cartoon about the intersection of self-pity, entitlement, rape, territoriality, misogyny and fear of women. You see it all over the place online in the form of Men's Rights Activists (of whom there are a few reasonable non-misogynists), Men Going Their Own Way, Pick Up Artists, and dudes touting the "Red Pill", because The Matrix is a good movie. Look any of these up if you have the stomach for it. These are extreme examples, but watered-down forms of these ideas are everywhere.
In lurking their blogs and youtube channels for a while, I've noticed that beyond the standard patriarchal chauvinism there is this deep fear of women - what they will do to me, how they will reject me, how they will use me, how they are changing society in a way that does not favor me, how they are making men into something I don't like, how they are making themselves into something I don't like, that they won't give me what I want, and that they won't give me what I think is rightfully mine. This goes beyond fear of feminism- this is fear of women at its purest. And that, to quote a puppet, leads to anger and hate. It's sad.
I am a feminist. I think there's enough ice cream to go around, but it does mean those of us with 3 scoops might have to give one or two up. Also, The Matrix is a fun movie but probably not anything you should be basing a philosophy on.
***I ENDED UP CLOSING THE COMMENTS BECAUSE OF INTERNET. YOU KNOW HOW IT IS. HECK, A FEW OF THE COMMENTERS EVEN ASKED FOR THE COMMENTS TO BE CLOSED. IF YOU WANT TO TALK TO ME, DROP ME A VIMEO MESSAGE.***
I answered some questions, addressed some criticisms and wrote at length about why I'm not wading into comment-wars here. Please read before you rage. The rest of you, keep being awesome.
'In London’s bustling, yet desolate Trafalgar Square, an ancient, rather hungry corpse meets a pigeon.'
