Woman
2002 10 min Rija Animated film studio, Latvia.

Woman is a visual poem about the creation of a woman and her two ways of encountering a man. In one way she has a potential to bring death to a man. In the other she can give him her love. It all depends on the man's actions.

A woman by herself is neither good nor evil. Neither she is a passive object of man's desires. It is all about interaction.

Woman comes from my own personal mythology but I believe that the images I use are quite universal. I wanted Woman to have a dreamlike quality. The images come from my own dreams as well as from the dreams of all women I know.
