Sheepwoman: A live film by SUE-C and Laetitia Sonami
Inspired by Haruki Murakami's "The Wild Sheep Chase" and "Dance, Dance, Dance" the film is brought to life in real time through the manipulation and projection of photographs, drawings, slides, videos, shadows and three dimensional objects, along with the processing and amplification of electronic music, nostalgic songs and field recordings. A suitcase-sized animation booth, miniature televisions, a train-propelled camera, motors, sensors, flash bulbs and talking lamps all work together to blur the boundaries of the real world and the cinema world. It is up to the audience to determine where dreams end and reality begins.
Sheepwoman premiered at LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions) as part of the Resonant Forms Festival on April 3, 4 and 5. For more information visit
