Absence of Her

Experimental | Short |  4 min 48 sec

“If our minds forget painful experiences, then our bodies will remind us, and they tell us of that pain during strange moments in our lives.” – Nicole Bogdanovic.

The short film “Absence of Her” is about how the abuse of a woman’s body is remembered. It also discusses society’s obsession to objectify and sexualize women’s bodies and how it is hurting our perceptions of how we see women.
