Metamorphosis

This film is based on testimonies of women who have experienced rape or incest, and of Greek myths of rape that results in metamorphosis. Arachne, the narrator of the film, is a mythological figure who was transformed into a spider by the gods as punishment for spinning their acts of rape into webs. In the film, Arachne spins the testimonies alongside the mythological stories of rape as one cultural continuum, creating a web which is a powerful and profound indictment. Netalie Braun attempts to locate a forgotten voice, to tell the story from the inside, to allow a space for a narrative that is difficult to hear and which illuminates the rotten outline of culture.
