“A poetic evidence that gender has not constantly been an concern.” Movie Path & Images by Alejandro BORJAS DUNCAN. Versions are Nathan Peron, Elea Bujosa, Pauline Painchault, Emett Suzie Moneze, Lisa Leroux, Brenda Oliveros.

«Cenée» is a visual poem whose tale is motivated by a Greek fantasy and its summary type has been affected by the visible novel «The Cage», published by Martin Vaughn-James in 2002. Its objective is to instruct us a person point: gender was not an problem in Ancient Greece and the strategy of id is additional fluid than what we even want to acknowledge.”


“I feel our identity is some thing we all generate every single day. It evolves, it variations, it adapts. It is a building affected by our beliefs, our encounters, the earth that surrounds us, and our personal uniqueness… The primary fantasy of Caeneus tells the tale of a female that, just after getting sexually abused by Poseidon, she asks him to be turned into a man, « so that she can by no means be susceptible again.”

“This film starts with that event but the narrative evolves into an inside research about self-identification and the conjunction of masculinity and femininity in the exact same unique. It supports the principle of non-binary gender in a refined way.

« Cenée » goes towards the actuality that even nowadays we are supposed to construct a cage, a jail for our concepts, for our self-expression to restrict us, to make us believe that everything is black or white, right or erroneous, male or woman. After we end thinking in a binary way, only then, we will be capable to acknowledge ourselves and everybody else.

Greek mythology was my principal inspiration for the reason that it is the tradition we have a tendency to glimpse at when we’re hunting for answers to old humanity queries. I was shocked to see that historic greeks by now understood the principle of non-binary gender and in some way or yet another they integrated into their lifestyle and passed it on to the following generations. Currently, much more than ever, we should learn from them to accept all people as they want to be”

“I am a Venezuelan artist dependent in Paris and I made this task with a bunch of close friends and artists from France and other nations. With a little spending plan, I resolved to surround myself with motivated and engaged people today that were inclined to give a voice to the non-binary local community. I labored with style designers from Paris, jewellery crafters from the South of France and even antique sellers from La Ciotat.”
