In His Bold Gaze



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








synopsis
A cannibal drama in which the actors play unfinished characters, 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 televised video cultures from the late 90s.
