some parts are missing (2009)
Directed by Helena Astbury
Camera and Lighting by Jake Astbury
Featuring Ella Cole
An exploration of the broken mantra of a female visual form.
A mantra broken, showing itself in missing text and revealing less (or more) than intended.
The filmic vocubulary of the 'reveal' is employed by both maker and subject, both an exploiter
and protector of themselves.
The paradoxical dialogue between an exposed female and the intent of the frame ebbs and
waves through the piece, threaded by conclusive text, which has its own reveal. No words are
spoken, but they are stated, through words and body semiotics.
