This is a project from earlier on in the school year. The assignment was to use "mes en scene" so the video had to be done all in one take and without editing.
In this, I made somewhat a parody of images presented in old romantic films and the cliche's presented. I looked at movies such as Casablanca with the quote "“ Kiss me. Kiss me as if it were the last time" and Carry on Cruising with the quote “Oh, it’s just the sudden realization, you see, of the fact, that I love you.” To give a brief explanation, I am interested in the idea of the male gaze and gender role within our modern culture. This is a topic I would like to explore more of so look at this as a start to a more long term project.
As one of the few women in the Occupy camp, Fanny has felt the intense community in the global movement during the occupation and later eviction from St. Paul's Cathedral. The Occupy movement claims to represent the 99%, it is, however, often represented by white British men in the media.
"I Am Not A Female Voice" portrays an Occupy London activist after the eviction from St. Pauls.

Meet North Carolina family: Kim, Kathy, Ben, Jamie and Justin, and listen as they put into words what's at stake behind North Carolina's proposed Amendment One.
"I mean you can term it whatever you want," said Kathy Sullivan. "But you really cannot look at these relationships and determine they are anything but family."
The proposed constitutional amendment which reads: "Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state," could potentially invalidate adoptions by same-gender parents across the state.

Music: "Viandanze," Fabrizio Paterlini
