A Tooth For An Eye
Another greatly inspiring music video for the Knife dealing with gender issues, this time directed by Roxy Farhat and Kakan Hermansson.
(from the press release)
“‘A Tooth For An Eye’ deconstructs images of maleness, power and leadership. In a sport setting where one would traditionally consider a group of men as powerful and in charge, an unexpected leader emerges. A child enters and allows the men to let go of their hierarchies, machismo and fear of intimacy, as they follow her into a dance. Their lack of expertise and vulnerability shines through as they perform the choreography. Amateurs and skilled dancers alike, express joy and a sense of freedom; there is no prestige in their performance. The child is powerful, tough and sweet all at once, roaring “I’m telling you stories, trust me”. There is no shame in her girliness, rather she possesses knowledge that the men lost a long time ago.”
