Encore Shorts: True Sound Facade

Director's Statement

By combining live-action and animation, the film becomes a celebration of how our inner and outer lives merge with each other playfully in the act of artistic creation. It takes inspiration from the Japanese notions of ‘honne’ – the true sound, one’s true feelings – and ‘tatemae’ – the facade we put up to live in society. Staring Kino McHugh, dancing with and against a colourful animated environment born out of her movements, the film is an exploration of our multiplied, curated and fragmented identities, finding the ‘true sound’ of the self behind the projected one.
