31 Gen «I am Hydra» by Thale Blix Fastvold
In the experimental short «I am Hydra» the Norwegian visual artist Thale Blix Fastvold creates a fascinating intersection where feminism and ecology, myth and Anthropocene, past and present converge.
The director reinterprets the theme of water as a life resource associated with birth, offering the perspective of a female figure as the symbolic seat of ever-changing energy, somehow exposed to erosion by the outside world.
This intense conceptual core, borrowed from the director’s long artistic research, is accompanied by a subtle yet extremely personal expressive garment, as hypnotic as a distant sound of waves.
The result is an art short film that stands out for its originality and that she experiments with visual and audio, managing to keep the core of the message she wants to convey very clear.
