|Plot||An animated video shot on a cold January night in Southeastern Serbia during a ritual called Surovari in which men dress as women (large breasted peasants, grandmothers, and brides), and engage in pretend sexual acts with village bachelors. Little is known about the meaning of this pagan ritual, but its contemporary gender role-play implications are profound. The former Yugoslavia adheres by our Western standards to traditional gender roles and codes, and thus alternative variations of sexual expression are often met with fear, and even violence. In Boy Brides & Bachelors, I use stop motion animations to engage my questions about the underlying meanings of the ritual, and make a connection between my inability to translate much of what was going on with the strange language of gender itself.... search for Boy Brides & Bachelors on IMDb|
