Work Girl Play
Elísabet Birta Birta Sveinsdóttir
Home videos from my childhood and teens, archive and found footage sampled with with new material make up this personal documentary that reflects on how women experience themselves as objectified beings affected by media and social constraints. The work is a response to old material, some of which I did not have control over, yet it has still defined me. A poetic narrative, full of contradictions, about a girl who has an awakening to these effects that lead her to contemplate control over her own identity, ideology and political awareness.
