for your pleasure

A young actress from Slovenia performs in front of the camera for several hours, without direction, script, or any other instruction. The only source of material that she can rely on is herself. By addressing the camera eye as a tool of desubjectivization, she questions the expectations that are applied to her by the visual regime and refuses to identify with constructed fantasies projected on her. An intense display of affects and attitudes related to the system of categorization and precarious work challenges the viewer as well as the filmmaker.
