This program offers a collection of distinct individual works that interact with the notion of limitation through subverting feminine expectations, rethinking the ontology of national identity, refusing to conform to genre, and rejecting formal cinematic structures. Apart, the following works maintain their identities, together they construct a unified objective.
Through contrast, codependence, and emotional destabilization, Multiplicity disrupts a single reading of its multiple narratives. It offers multiple readings, multiple POVs, multiple critiques, multiple voices, multiple interpretations, etc. All of these practices create a complex program that aggressively appalls homogeneity.
We define multiplicity as rejecting visual and ideological singularity. Nature. Club culture. Phone calls. Feminine bodies. Separately, but exponentially more so together, Multiplicity challenges the status quo of cinematic and sociopolitical practices.
