A short film by NaoKo TakaHashi, produced during Sharjah Biennale 7's Artist in Residency Program.
Shot on Mini DV, colour with sound
The square is completely dominated by men, waiting for jobs, having tea and playing cards. When a female artist comes around asking questions, it opens up for reflections on status; race, class and gender, language and identity in society.
This performative film explores the the boundary between fiction and documentary, by combining vocal or textual narratives with interventions into social and cultural environments, transforming them into poetic language.
