An astonishing film
12 April 2015 | by lor1See all my reviews

In her 20 minute short film Männin, Mika'Ela Fisher, presents us with a schizophrenic vision of her own body that serves as a paradigm of a universal human entity. The film's magic use of make-up and light to transform her into the same man and woman is the motor behind the meeting of a "Me" split into two bodies of different sexes. Language, punctuated by the accompaniment of a cello, also plays a part; the drama of the "I" providing a counterpoint for the divided "Me" is expressed both in German, the native language of Mika'Ela, and then in French, her adopted language. An astonishing film which promises more surprises in the future when Mika'Ela completes her next project, a full length feature film.
