Del af kortfilmpakken ‘Daddy + Jeg er en anden (I Am An Other)’

To unge udlever deres passion for cosplaying og for hinanden i en film om at være ung i en performativ tidsalder.

Percy og Elija er i et forhold, de bor sammen i en forstad til København og deler ikke blot en passion for cosplay. De deler også hele det univers, de sammen har bygget om den performative, japanske rollespilskultur, hvor de kan udleve andre sider af sig selv. Vi oplever de to unge ‘in character’ og i fuld makeup, men også når de deler hovedpude med hinanden i deres intime og private ‘backstage’ hjemme i lejligheden. Victoria Salomonsens ‘Jeg er en anden’ er en stilfuld og psykologisk indsigtsfuld film om at være ung i en performativ tidsalder, hvor man har friheden til både at være sig selv og en anden – hvis bare man også har modet.

Two young people live their passion for cosplaying and for each other in a film about being young in a performative age.

Percy and Elija are in a relationship, they live together in a suburb of Copenhagen and don’t only share a passion for cosplay. They also share the entire universe that they have built together in the performative Japaneses role-playing universe, where they can live out other sides of themselves. We experience the two young people ‘in character’ and in full makeup, but also when they share pillows with each other in their intimate and private ‘backstage’ home in their apartment. Victoria Salomonsen’s ‘I am an Other’ is a stylish and psychologically astute film about being young in a performative age, where you have the freedom to be yourself and someone else – if only you have the courage too.
