In this film commissioned by the Barbican, NOWNESS creative director and filmmaker Bunny Kinney borrows from the exhibition’s themes to create a playful, pastel-hued, talking-heads film exploring gender roles, patriarchy and hegemonic masculinity.
“The concept was simple: to create a living document of ‘masculinity now’ embodied by a vibrant array of individuals,” says Kinney, who interviewed 16 people whose identities span the spectrum of masculinity. “Each person featured has a different relationship to their own sense of masculinity and what that even means to them.”
