Kristina Inčiūraitė, “Change All the Buttons” (Pakeisk visas sagas), 2015, experimental film, 32 min.
This film reflects a well-known feminist film “Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles” (1975) by Belgian director Chantal Akerman, which reveals women’s daily routine. “Change All the Buttons”, the salesgirl says to a woman who is desperately trying to buy identical missing button for a man’s jacket.
Kristina Inčiūraitė shows her parents’ house. The greatest amount of attention is paid to buttons collected by the artist’s parents; one after another they are displayed on plates as if to portray a day, a week, a year or a decade that passed away. A few dialogues from Akerman’s film are inserted into Inčiūraitė’s film. These dialogues derive from the characters’ routinized daily life. Inčiūraitė emphasizes dialogues by repeating them over and over again. But these dialogues slightly change into a senseless flow of thoughts.
The soundtrack (vocal expressions) is created by the Vilnius University women's choir 'Virgo' (Lithuania).
