Interview with the Filmmaker Annemijn Hélène Rijk
Your views on the film.
The way we think, the way we look, even what we can fantasize about is framed by the structures that construct our societies. Annemijn Rijk is fascinated by how the body relates to these social, often hidden frameworks. As well as by how the body can challenge them. She investigated how the body today, within these systems, relates to beauty. For her, beauty is transparency in showing the body honestly, transparency in the expression of her dancers, as well as in exposing hidden, social systems.
