Oten (c) 2019 film by Pippa & Tara Jade Samaya AUSTRALIA

A stain on my perfect intention. A blot spreading on the hand I use to control it all. A crinkle in my perfect circle. A pin prick glitch that leads to my unraveling. A breath of wind that opens into a storm, rushing towards my ultimate surrender.

Liminality film by Jennifer Akalina Petuch, Annali Rose (c) 2020 USA

Liminality film by Jennifer Akalina Petuch, Annali Rose (c) 2020 USA

Liminality is inspired by reimagining what Odette may have experienced upon plunging to her death in the lake from the classical ballet “Swan Lake”. It is a moment of suspended reality and a story of disenchantment, self-discovery and transformation. In our modern world we know that “happily ever after” is a journey and we have the ability to exercise our own agency to create our experience. In our story, the heroine is exploring the space in between life and death. She is coming to terms with the end of her world as she knew it and finding the strength and courage to move into a new existence.

We see this story as a metaphor for what many ballet dancers experience upon the imminent journey of their retirement from professional careers. On stage there is always a happy ending. For example, Seigfried in “Swan Lake” immediately realizes his mistake in being seduced by another woman, seeks forgiveness from Odette, and follows her off the cliff to his death so they can be reunited in the afterlife. But what is the reality for the dancers who play these characters? When the fairytale is over, what happens next?

RUBY - Portrait number 2 of XXY film by Clotilde Rullaud (c) 2018 FRANCE

RUBY – Portrait number 2 of XXY film by Clotilde Rullaud (c) 2018 FRANCE

“We’ve begun to raise daughters more like sons… but few have the courage to raise our sons more like our daughters.” Gloria Steinem.

In the education girls receive, there is an ambiguity between candour and bravery. How often modern society chooses a helpless girl to face the “bull”, just like Ruby Bridges Hall in her time? When at the same time, it does its utmost to restrict the free and powerful Feminine within each girl, it forces them to become a warrior woman. Be a man, my girl!

Ruby Bridges Hall
In 1960, Ruby Bridges Hall became the first Afro-American child to attend a school for white children, when she was just six years old. Owing to anti-black racism, she had to be escorted into school by federal marshals, since the local police of New Orleans and the state police of Louisiana refused to protect her.
When Ruby got to school, the white parents immediately removed their children. All the teachers, except for Barbara Henry, refused to teach classes as long as there was a black child in the school. Barbara Henry therefore taught classes to Ruby alone, for over a year “as if she were teaching a whole class”.

Ruby is the 2nd portrait of the 30min long non-narrative abstract music video XXY, that investigates the “feminine”.
