HER MASTER’S VOICE
The video consists of one simple scene. A recurring motion symbolises a social dead end.
A guest-lecturing documentary filmmaker is backed against the wall when a student breaks the silence surrounding her dubious depictions. The discussion about who is racist and who has interpreted the matter at hand erupts into a frustrating loop of questioning glances and bruised egos.
The film follows 13-year-old wrestler Jaana and her best friend Bettan. Jaana’s goal is to advance to the more experienced group. Their relationship changes as Bettan starts focusing more on life outside of the wrestling club. Jaana has to choose between following her best friend and following her goals.
