MAN is an expansion of gender and language, a journey of physical transformation through the wilderness of pregnancy, echoed by the sole remaining recording of Virginia Woolf’s voice.

The film is a truly experimental expression of form – hand-processed super 8mm film, combined with watercolour-negative animation; time-lapse of a pregnancy shot frame by frame, day by day; bookended by a series of self-portraits, where the filmmaker is satirizing her own use of particular attire, generally read as masculine, becoming revelatory when posed in the context of the pregnant body.

Film is part of the screening of shorts Queer Moves.

Organisation: City of Women. In cooperation with Alkatraz Gallery.
Supported by the Swedish Arts Council.
