Making the Hairless Woman 31 min short doc by Kim Keown
Laura Sister Angel I call the first film I ever made, and I suppose that’s true outside of animation classes where I made images. At first the film was a way of expressing a feeling or feelings-loss, mourning, anger, sadness. I used the movements and the rhythms to get at all that. But the story developed overtime to incorporate the insight that death manifests, through the various sound tracks used or unused during the film’s screenings. Starting on a 4 track with whispers to telling the entire story from my sister’s death to her reappearance as an angel in my life 20 years later.
