World sales: Slingshot Films
Adele Tulli’s formally straightforward and aesthetically convincing film document deals with rigid gender roles and uncritical submission to the dictates of (hetero)normativity. The director focuses the camera on everyday actions, rituals and scenes and makes some situations appear strange through a contradicting image-sound montage.
The filmmaker and scholar researched subversive film aesthetics in a queer and feminist context. She is interested in experimental-documentary forms as well as in gender studies and visual anthropology. Her films have screened at numerous festivals and received awards worldwide.
