Daphne, in Praise of Remoteness| 29mins
Director: Guy Bordin and Renaud De Putter | Producer: Gsara Brussels, Belgium
Focus Years: 2009 | Country: Belgium
Through the fate of two Samoan "faâ€™afafine" (transvestites), the film evokes a certain distance to the world, between contemplation and renouncement. This attitude finds itself in correspondence with the enigma of a young girl who lives at the end of a remote village. The directors invite you here for an impressionistic rediscovery of the ancient myth of Daphneâ€™s metamorphosis in the Polynesian context.
