SYNOPSIS

Mika is auditioning male actors for her first feature. The actors are all well and shy; established alpha dogs in the film business. The situation turns more sour as their confidence in her reaches new lows. Mika starts pushing harder, reaching the limits for what’s okay in this kind of situation and what is not.


 

PROGRAM NOTE


 


 Lovisa SIREN, director of Pussy Have the Power, a
 film that was screened in the previous year\'s SIWFF,
 is invited to this year\'s SIWFF with her newly directed
 film, Audition . This film takes as its subject matter
 the female director\'s protagonist, the male actor, and
 a role reversal in the patriarchal power scheme. As
 an individual who has a keen insight into the subtle
 and unspoken patriarchal attitudes that pervades the
 entertainment industry, Lovisa SIRÉN uses Audition to
 portray how uncomfortable and unpleasant the male
 actor is with expressing emotions, such as contempt,
 humiliation, and vulnerability in front of a female
 director. [Sunah KIM]
