Manuela...

Thisproject was initiated about 4 weeks ago.Ibought a suitcase at an auction, without knowing the contents.Analyzingthe contents sparked the idea of creating a character; Manuela.Iposted a listing pretending to be directing a movie in which Manuela wouldstar, giving a short description of her character based on the findings in thesuitcase.Idecided she was from a small town in Italy and moved to Canada to escape herrural life.Single,succulent, stubborn, and scared of ageing. Now chased by her past.Womenfrom all over the world applied for the role by sending me a monologue of theirown interpretation of Manuela.Inthe end, the problems characteristics derived from the monologues representgeneric worries/ stereotypes of women her age.Thevideo below represents these- the woman seen is a professional actress (whosename I know not) that applied for the job.(Ifthat's you I'm terribly sorry for deceiving you, but ever so grateful for youreffort and inspiration for the video)
