The Parade of Rituals and Stereotypes
(SWE 2012, HD, 10 Min. 56 Sek., enOF)
The Parade of Rituals and Stereotypes consists of a dark series of fascinating animations of clay figures in which humans and animals act out upsetting scenarios of torture, humiliation, and masquerade, mining the interplay of brutality and guilt. Narrative is conceived here in spatial terms such as setting, sound, and action, as on a stage.
