Approach/Withdraw

RO: Approach/Withdraw e un video de 10 minute, filmat prima data in 16 mm, narat de Rebecca Root, care exploreaza cum intelegerea publica a estrogenului si a hormonilor sexuali afecteaza intelegerea de sine si relatiile celor care se simt in conflict cu sexul atribuit la nastere.

Marea parte a materialului prezentat vorbeste ori despre productia farmaceutica de estrogen (pilule contraceptive sau hormonii folositi de femeile trans) sau despre chimicale care intrerup transmiterea endocrina – substante care se comporta ca estrogenul cand sunt absorbite in corp. Sunt intalnite in plasticuri, vopsele pentru tesaturi sau produse din soia. Filmul incorporeaza imaginarul crestin, matritele pentru capurile phrenologice si fotografii luate de sexologi ai secolului al XX-lea, pentru a ilustra modurile in care identitatile contemporane poarta marcile preceptelor religioase si stiintifice.

Scris, filmat si regizat de Ker Wallwork si Juliet Jacques pentru Proiectul ‘Queering Love Queering Hormones’, no.w.here, BFI and Kings College prin suportul Wellcome Trust.

EN: Approach/Withdraw is a ten-minute video, originally shot on 16mm film, narrated by Rebecca Root, which explores how public understandings of oestrogen and sex hormones affect the sense of self and relationships ofthose who feel at odds with their assigned gender.

The majority of the material featured either relate to the production of pharmaceutical oestrogen (the contraceptive pill, or hormones used by trans women) or contain endocrine-disrupting chemicals – substances that behave like oestrogen when they are absorbed into the body. They are common in plastics, fabric dyes and soy products. The film also incorporates
Christian imagery, 19th century phrenological head casts and photographs taken by 20th century sexologists, to illustrate ways in which contemporary identities bear the marks of religious and scientific precepts.

Written, shot and directed by Ker Wallwork and Juliet Jacques  for the no.w.here, BFI and Kings College ‘Queering Love Queering Hormones’ project, with support from the Wellcome Trust.
