Isaac Julien
14 mins (single-screen / rear projection version: 20 mins) sepia/colour 16mm


Produced in collaboration with and featuring choreographers Bebe Miller and Ralph Lemon along with British actress Cleo Sylvestre, Three explores aspects of desire through dance movements and symbolically weighted images.

These are juxtaposed with their social, cultural or religious sources thereby reifying a narrative which draws on and comments on interdisciplinary codes. Indeed, one of the objectives of Julien's oeuvre is to break down the barriers which exist between different artistic disciplines by uniting them in an exponential dialogue. As such the collaborative nature of this work is one of its most important elements, drawing from and commenting on film, dance, photography, music, theatre, painting and sculpture and uniting these in a poetic landscape to construct a powerfully visual narrative.
