Agnes Momirski | Film Night – VALA
Wednesday 16 May| Roodkapje | Delftseplein 39
Doors 20:00 | Free entrance
VALA film is inspired by the flood of digital assistants and mindfulness apps with feminine voices. The film experiments with the linguistic and vocal registers of sensual and instructional female voices, and focuses on the archetypal female roles. Through VALA’s contradictory vocal resonances we observe the historic split between man and nature, the rational and the irrational, techno- instructional and subconsciously poetic.
The name Vala comes from Nordic mythology, where she is the female shaman, Vedic scriptures where she is the deamon, and from Blake’s mythological poetry, where she’s the representation of nature. Vala is an omnipresent consciousness, a conglomerate of voices and inner human contradictions, the new harmony between the virtual and physical, digital and analogue, reason and intuition, man and nature.
VALA music and sound created by Jesse Perlstein.
