LIKE ANYONE ELSE
like anyone else from women with a movie camera on Vimeo.
Women With A Movie Camera aka Iris Wakulenko and Chryssa Panoussiadou recently sent me a link to their latest documentary Like Anyone Else and I felt compelled to share it with you all. The short film is essentially a human rights story, exploring the themes of marriage and equality for same-sex couples. Filmed at various Royal Wedding street parties in the heart of London's gay district, the two creatives have created a piece which truly celebrates love in all its forms. In 2009 I had the pleasure of interviewing Iris for jotta.com (the piece has sadly been taken down after Jotta deleted almost all of its back-catalogue of articles) during the promotion of Two Way Love, a wonderful short film created in collaboration with the Kyoto University of Art & Design which explores the relationships of Japanese and Western cross-cultural couples.
