VREESLOOS

A writer loves his nightmarish story about a woman who is trapped in misery, but when a young woman reads it, she rewrites the woman’s misery into victory.

Vreesloos is a 12 minute Afrikaans experimental film, routed in themes of feminism.

The film explores symbolic imagery to convey the story, some of the elements are very subtle and others are very noticeable. The nature of this film is to inspire questions and thoughts. It gave us as students a chance to explore our own thoughts and values as well as develop our filmmaking skills. Experimental work is necessary for filmmakers to make, so that we can understand our craft and ourselves. It is easy to fall in love with an experiment, and it is also easy to hate it when it blows up in your face, that is how we learn and that is why we made this film. Luckily nothing blew up, but we did learn some valuable lessons.
