Pol(e)arity of Self is a short film that underscores multiple, contradictory selves and how they navigate the internalisation of an external gaze. Throughout, the pole is simultaneously used a splitting point and a meeting point for a self that is active and in control, a self that feels vulnerable, trapped, and objectified, and an ambiguous self that is attempting to pass through all of the above.

Content warning, 16+, partial nudity.

If you enjoyed this film and would like to learn more about the process or if you have any questions, you can join me this Thursday 29/10/20 at 1pm over at Metal’s Instagram where I will be doing a live discussion / Q&A.
