Her Voice: performed by Lisbeth Gruwez, written & directed by Silvia Defrance
Experimental Award at Porto Femme Festival, 2019.
“Her Voice” is a short experimental film where the role and the representation of female identity is addressed.
“Her Voice” offers an enigmatic stream of consciousness that resists conventional narrative expectations. In a certain way, the film echoes the #MeToo era, in which we live now. Somewhere between the desperate Boop-Oop-a-Doop’s of a vintage Betty Boop and the film experiments of Maya Deren. “Her Voice” reflects a woman’s subjectivity and her sometimes problematic relation to the external world.
