Cenée, a visual poem about non-binary gender

“A poetic evidence that gender has not constantly been an issue.” Movie Direction & Pictures by Alejandro BORJAS DUNCAN. Models are Nathan Peron, Elea Bujosa, Pauline Painchault, Emett Suzie Moneze, Lisa Leroux, Brenda Oliveros.

«Cenée» is a visual poem whose story is motivated by a Greek myth and its summary type has been influenced by the visual novel «The Cage», published by Martin Vaughn-James in 2002. Its target is to train us 1 matter: gender was not an problem in Historical Greece and the thought of identification is a lot more fluid than what we even want to acknowledge.”

“I imagine our identity is something we all make each day. It evolves, it improvements, it adapts. It’s a design influenced by our beliefs, our activities, the globe that surrounds us, and our personal uniqueness… The authentic fantasy of Caeneus tells the tale of a lady that, following getting sexually abused by Poseidon, she asks him to be turned into a gentleman, « so that she can never be susceptible once more.”

“This film commences with that event but the narrative evolves into an interior lookup about self-identification and the conjunction of masculinity and femininity in the very same particular person. It supports the principle of non-binary gender in a delicate way.

« Cenée » goes in opposition to the reality that even currently we are supposed to create a cage, a jail for our strategies, for our self-expression to limit us, to make us imagine that almost everything is black or white, correct or incorrect, male or woman. When we quit thinking in a binary way, only then, we will be able to accept ourselves and absolutely everyone else.

Greek mythology was my main inspiration due to the fact it is the tradition we are inclined to search at when we’re hunting for responses to aged humanity queries. I was astonished to see that historical greeks already understood the principle of non-binary gender and in some way or yet another they built-in into their society and passed it on to the future generations. These days, a lot more than ever, we must study from them to settle for anyone as they want to be”


“I am a Venezuelan artist primarily based in Paris and I created this challenge with a bunch of mates and artists from France and other nations. With a compact spending plan, I decided to surround myself with enthusiastic and engaged folks that had been eager to give a voice to the non-binary local community. I labored with manner designers from Paris, jewelry crafters from the South of France and even antique dealers from La Ciotat.”
