The clock strikes 11:11 and time stops so a young woman can explore her thoughts about her life and marriage.
She is confronted by her past and future self who both try to push her to become more perfect. She looks in the mirror and doesn’t recognize herself, the mirror covers her body and she starts to realize that she is trapped.
Writer/director/producer: Alicia Krawchuk
Producer: Daisy Long
This film was a collaboration between choreographer Joshua Beamish and I as we tried to create a cold, mechanical environment that has trapped this poor woman.
The project was successfully funded through Kickstarter and had massive budgetary restraints but it came out with a sort of low-fi feel that I now really love.
Although it’s an experimental film with no dialogue, Eleven Eleven is also a dance film and so uses classic and contemporary ballet movement as a language to communicate this woman’s journey into herself.
