I woke with this marble head in my hands;
it exhausts my elbow and I don’t know where to put it down.
It was falling into the dream as I was coming out of the dream
so our life became one and it will be very difficult for it to separate again.
-Mythistorema, George Seferis
A naked body moves a stranger to empathy. PARTHENON is a slippery, dizzying provocation on art, control, and perception.
A recipient of the 2015 Oak Cliff Film Festival Filmmaker's Grant and made with the generous participation of the New York Academy of Art, the film dissects the male gaze that has perpetuated throughout history. Ultimately, it is a movie about the need to be seen.
Starring Lily Baldwin, Tallie Medel, and Thiago Martins.
