Place: a few thoughts

I’m really interested in making a film that explores a way I tried to escape a part of me that needed my attention. I connected it with place because the project brief I’m working on is about place; you can’t explore this stuff without a place (can you?).

Place is where the action is situated.

Place invites or suppresses action and an individual’s response or reaction occurs from a place inside them.

The intended use of a place can be subverted.

When a group gathers at a place a societal norm for that group is created, consciously or unconsciously. This, in itself, can become a pressure and create a desire to fit in and be accepted, creating conflict with the desire to express individuality. But if the individual is suppressing a part of her/himself it is impossible for her/him to feel accepted by the group.
