About this submission

The reason I wanted to make Declamation appears in my love for the representation, the process an actor has to go through to portray a different character. In this film, the character realizes she is an actress portraying someone else. She wants to run away from this visual narrator but fails on her attempt. It's always staring at her, everywhere. It is interesting to me how new technologies harasses us in a way, where you always feel like being monitored by someone else, and how the other’s gaze can affect us deeply. A tribute to theatre inspired on the creationism.
