1. Images shot first, a pantoum found later, images edited following the pantoum’s words and structure. Playful.
2. A mess of images, a subconscious examination in miscommunication.
3. Pantun is about a game I (we) used to play pretending to be characters in invented fairy tales. This time it was a snail. The images of multiplied me are out of time with each other, I give up and try dancing.
4. A pantoum is assigned to me first, images shot and edited later in an exhausted stupor, somewhat following the pantoum’s words and structure. Shit.
About the filmmaker:
Chloe Yap Mun Ee is an experimental filmmaker and visual artist who is curious about the expressions of form, medium, identity, love, intimacy, as well as their hypocrisies and contradictions. Her shorts H10001_XTOUCH.MOV (2015), (?)’S GAZE (2016), and STRNGE PLCE (2016) have screened locally and internationally. She has also made smaller works like HOW MY BRAIN MAKES SENSE OF PASSING TIME (2017) and DANCE LIKE A SNAIL (2021). Currently she is working on a video installation confronting her fear and guilt towards the cinema image. She is also sometimes a writer, illustrator; and occasionally does film programming with friends for their independent film club
