Walling Dissensus

PRODUCTION DATE: 2014
DURATION: 5min 01sec

Walling Dissensus investigates a political criticality between different performative acts staged in a fictional space. Different identities are performed from soccer players, referees to police guards and different situations are staged from police marching, soccer players walling to police striking rebels.

A critical space is created concerning violence, political dissensus, repressing protests and sportsmanship through the aesthetic experience.
