The creators of “The Dress” avoid calling their work a “movie”. Instead, they use words “video”, “project”, “essay” or “research”. Nevertheless, this work was made with quality and honesty, and it seems to fully match the authors’ objective – to show “a single” story of the Belarusian woman, regardless of age, experience and social context. Watch "The Dress"
Girl from an orphanage, mother of a large family, business lady, social sctivist… The authors managed to talk frankly to their heroines, with no embellishments and make-up. To talk “on the field” – in a bedroom, kitchen, at work. This is not a set of interviews, but rather fragments of one endless and always topical conversation about life, men, children, fate and love.
“This is a video essay on how the social “outfit” helps us to pass the real for the desired, turning alternately into a carnival dress and a restraint jacket”, - say the authors of “The Dress”.
We think that after watching this 50-minute documentary you will understand something new about who the Belarusian women are.
