THAT HAS BEEN BOTHERING ME THE WHOLE TIME
project supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum, Warsaw
The film can be seen as a utopian suggestion. What happens, if you let a woman in a Burka do a performance, which could never be allowed to show publicly. At the end the set up is getting brought back to reality. We don’t claim this to be a real woman in a Burka, it becomes clear, that this is only a representation. The dancer Silke Grabinger is a body, which interprets something and can never really constitute the fate of those women.
