CINÉMA DU RÉEL 2018: JENY303 BY LAURA HUERTAS MILLÁN AND THE WHITE ELEPHANT BY SHURUQ HARB
By Pablo Gamba
Laura Huertas Millán’s Jeny303 and Shuruq Harb’s The White Elephant, (both part of the short film competition in Cinéma du Reel) are films realized by female artists and filmmakers, about identity political issues. In the first case, the film owes its existence to a malfunction of the 16mm camera used in the film. This is the kind of accidents that fascinated the surrealists, and the filmmaker chose to include the result.
