House Without a Key is the second short film by Marta Skoczeń. Shot on HDV, it unites images shot in Paris and in the Polish countryside. Coumba-Joana Wone, theatre actress, embodies a female character locked up in a closed space. The space is voluntarily undefined, leaving the subject a possibility to leave. In the short film the artist creates a portrait of a woman faced with confinement, torn between her desire for freedom and her obligations. By analogy, the film evokes a reflection on femininity, by getting in the intimacy of a young woman in the middle of an internal battle between her obligations, linked to the materiality of the house which imprisons her, and her desire for emancipation.
Milena Chevillard, 2020.
