The movie FEMINAM, Latin for woman is an autonomous visual work by Marijke De Belie in which the artist plays with representations of women throughout the centuries. Still it has not become a scientifical chronological enumeration of all female icons but more a flood of images like the one we experience in our REM sleep. For this she uses a direct animation technique. With a black aquarel pencil on a white panel of wood she registers the drawing process itself, in an authentic and uncomplicated drawing style.
