In His Bold Gaze



DV | 19min | color | 2.0 | in post | 2019









synopsis
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 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. Departing from practices such as documentary theatre and archival research, the film re-enacts the infamous case by connecting it to transitioning video cultures from the late 90s.
