Mine is an abstract and poetic film that explores identity, self and commodification in the context of a patriarchal capitalist society. The film begins with a young woman’s solo trip to the now abandoned park in her hometown which allows her to slip in and out of her earlier years for a brief moment. Upon returning home, she navigates her house in a new light, where she quickly realizes she can no longer find a way out, with each room representing a different part of the body and mind, neither of which she can escape.
Mine serves to question and break down a sense of self and the subsequent emotions while contextualizing oneself as a BIWOC in a capitalist society. The film is less about the broader social pressures inflicted to monetize efforts, but instead dissects the individual affective ramifications of forced commodification, and reflects on the enduring psychological impact of patriarchy on a sense and possession of self-agency in both a physical and mental capacity.
