In this visually lush experimental film, self-portrait morphs into surreal historical role-playing. Zavé’s multi-vocal verse weaves together images of dress-up, dream, and ancestral re-imagination. Conjuring semi-mythical mirroring worlds, he moves between embodiments of his pre-colonial indigenous trans spiritual roots, vintage glamourized gender play and a third contemporary body that only knows how to shed. "in formation" meditates on the love affair between body and embodiment, wondering at the elusive, expansive possibilities for simultaneous becoming, transforming and holding histories.
