We have just completed and uploaded a short video introduction to ‘Wise Women Will Save the World’. The clip is called ‘Healing our Planet by Amplifying the Influence of Women’ which is also our tagline.
The clip’s theme is based on our firm belief that the values, wisdom, influence and solidarity of women worldwide as an essential pre-requisite to the dismantling of toxic patriarchal systems that are ruining our planet and its people.
We are also in the early stages of producing one or more satirical video clips aimed at ridiculing patriarchal systems and exposing their devastating effects. We chose to contrast the terrible consequences of male-dominated cultures, religions, political structures and organisations with the innocence of the Lego children’s toy.
Glance at these stills of some of our tiny sets and you’ll see several recurring symbols: the weapons and menacing faces represent power, control and aggression, while the skeleton represents the death of all that must be destroyed or exploited to gain wealth (represented by the treasure chest). Notions of greed, entitlement and a ‘win at all costs’ mentality are also bound up with these symbols.
