Making Men examines the question of masculinity. This dance film zooms in on 4 individuals in the process of becoming men. As is expected, they proceed unquestioningly into manhood through various stages of their lives, adopting the clearly coded characteristics allowed by society.
However, a feeling of unease, in the very depths of their being, oppresses them. They feel uncertainty but also something else, harder to define…
Shot in the breathtaking landscape of Zimbabwe, the film features strong and rhythmical choreography but also a special camera work that intensifies emotions inspired by the movement.
After fifteen years as a ballet and contemporary dancer, Antoine Panier redirected his professional activity to new technologies and visual communications, including web development, graphics and video. He then carried out projects in various fields (corporate videos, films and trailers for dance and theatre, motion design …) and took part in the development of the Theatrez-moi! platform for which he makes many video trailers. Through his training and experience in dance, Antoine has developed an original approach to dance in film. This innovative camera work is based on the relationship between the lens and the choreography or the film maker and the dancer.
