«Cenée» is a visual poem whose story is inspired by a Greek fantasy and its summary form has been influenced by the visible novel «The Cage», revealed by Martin Vaughn-James in 2002.

“I feel our identity is a thing we all make each individual working day. It evolves, it improvements, it adapts. It’s a design influenced by our beliefs, our ordeals, the environment that surrounds us, and our have uniqueness… The primary myth of Caeneus tells the tale of a female that, immediately after becoming sexually abused by Poseidon, she asks him to be turned into a man, « so that she can never ever be vulnerable once more.”

“This movie starts with that occasion but the narrative evolves into an internal research about self-identification and the conjunction of masculinity and femininity in the exact same specific. It supports the concept of non-binary gender in a refined way.

« Cenée » goes against the truth that even nowadays we are meant to develop a cage, a prison for our strategies, for our self-expression to restrict us, to make us consider that almost everything is black or white, proper or incorrect, male or woman. As soon as we quit contemplating in a binary way, only then, we will be ready to accept ourselves and absolutely everyone else.

Greek mythology was my primary inspiration simply because it is the tradition we have a tendency to look at when we’re searching for responses to aged humanity inquiries. I was shocked to see that ancient greeks currently understood the idea of non-binary gender and in some way or a further they built-in into their tradition and passed it on to the upcoming generations. Right now, far more than ever, we need to find out from them to settle for anyone as they want to be”
