In His Bold Gaze

DV | 19min | color | 2.0 | in post | 2020

A cannibal drama in which the actors play unfinished characters, often unsure of who they are on and off screen: a closeted gay man, his mother and his lover caught between the anxiety, frustration and pleasure of castration. 

[ In His Bold Gaze delves into the life of Armin Meiwes, computer repair technician from Rotenburg, Germany, who in 2001 devoured Bernd Brandes, an engineer from Berlin. ]
