  4. Her Voice – synopsis English:
    In a quest for personal freedom and creativity, a women tries to brake free from the tension that exists between the individual and a collective female subjectivity. The role and the representation of female identity is addressed.
    Her Voice is a blend of autobiographical reflections indistinguishably intertwined with the story of three female icons: Lola Montez, Hildegard von Bingen and Betty Boop, who are all played by Lisbeth Gruwez. A corporeal language of spasms and ‘crazy’ poses aids in dissecting the forced masquerade of women as ‘femme fatale’, ‘mystic’ and ‘sex toy’. The visual vocabulary keeps a fine balance between suggestion and representation in order to provoke an intimate experience instead of just illustrating a story.

    Her Voice – synopsis French:
    Dans sa quête de liberté et de créativité, une femme essaie de se libérer de la tension qui existe entre une subjectivité féminine individuelle et collective. Le rôle et la représentation des femmes est mis en doute. Her voice est un mélange de réflexions autobiographiques parfaitement imbriquées dans l’histoire de trois icônes féminines: Lola Montez, Hildegard von Bingen et Betty Boop, jouées par Lisbeth Gruwez. Par un langage corporel utilisant spasmes musculaires et poses « folles », la mascarade imposée à la femme, en tant que « femme fatale », «mystique» et « jouet sexuel », est démantelée. Le style visuel oscille entre suggestion et représentation. Le film en devient la confession d'une expérience intime plutôt que la simple illustration d'une histoire.
