JAG VILL INTE PRATA ENGELSKA LÄNGRE!!
This is the current project I am working on, partly inspired by a Swedish text I wrote after a call on what the english language means to me, partly by the English text I wrote: ‘My Shining thought’ from Onno's class and partly by E. Ann Kaplan’s essay ‘Is the Gaze Male?’
I have been spending most of the quarantine planning a story board and gathering footage both from my archive and from shooting. The video aims to tackle my thoughts on the English language being the dominant narrative in my life and in this world as a whole. I wanted to look at how the Wester dominant Narrative has had an effect on me using James Bond to represents the dominant White Gaze narrative in Cinema and my language as the closest story I can relate to.
I also want to attempt to look at motherhood inspired by the text: Is the Gaze Male? by E. Ann Kaplan, where Kaplan suggests for a return to the Motherhood as an alternative way of countering the Dominant Male Gaze in Cinema.
I am still working on this video and taking it step by step. I have gathered most of my footage, but decided to put a pause on the project to work on this website. Here you will find some images of screenshots from fragments of the videos I shot, as well as images of my plans and storyboards.
I will continue working on this after the assessments!
