TITLE: Latskap (Sloth)
Latskap (Sloth), inspired by one of the seven deadly sins, is seen from a young woman’s perspective of love. Latskap (Sloth shows how much effort it takes to say what you feel, and how easy it is to not say anything, and let everything flow away. The costume and fabric choices are used as an essential tool to get the right feeling in the image, and the silence under water increases the mood. The performers wear costumes, together with fabric in the water that turns into a painting of moving colors. Stills from the movie become self-contained images where the room, fabric and body become one.
