D A N I E L

a short film by Claire van Beek

A young novice at an isolated convent is confronted with the sudden desire to explore her sexual self in the wake of meeting a blue-tongued lizard.

 

DANIEL is an unsettling, visceral exploration of female sexual repression, and the consequences of lack of self-acceptance.

"I believe in the need for the strengthening of young women’s relationships with their own sexual identity. In an overly sexualized world, how do we own our own sexual power?"
