1991 is the brief retelling of what it is like to be on the cusp of womanhood in the early ‘90s as a victim of sexual assault in a community encased in fear. Youth are left to their own devices. Poverty is rampant. And misogyny is the norm. It’s a world unlike today, and yet, eerily similar.
1991 explores the labour it takes to share a story of sexual assault through a coming of age narrative set in the 90s. Using overhead projections, magazine cut-out collage, live voice modulation, and cassette tapes; a movie is created live through the whispered efforts of the performers.
