Thee Women

Running time: 4’
Production: ES 2014
This is an intimate portrait, in the form of a triptych, of three prisoners. We don't need to know in which prison they are held, who these women are, or their names. After a few images and brief testimonies, we come to realize how these women feel, and more importantly, why these women choose to keep silent. The portrayal explores both the inner worlds of each inmate, and their subjective experiences of the cold world around them. The only free open space exposed to them is the sky, paradoxically both unattainable and infinite. Even the reverberating birdsong from the skies above gets trapped as it falls between the echoing prison walls. Nature, lush and mysterious, remains excluded behind these same walls.
