Unknown Woman by Kayla Parker
Unknown Woman is in the PoetryFilm Archive and has been screened at a number of events including PoetryFilm at Tate Britain and PoetryFilm at Curzon Soho. The film traces a woman’s psychological journey using a mixture of drawn animation, stop-motion and live-action footage; the film originated from dreams of a woman and a crow in which the two beings shared one sentience.
“The man looks the world full in the face, as if it were made for his uses and fashioned to his liking.
The woman takes a sidelong glance at it, full of subtlety, even of suspicion.”
Orlando, Virginia Woolf, Selected Works of Virginia Woolf p. 490
