In a world so strange and absurd,
Where the norms of society are blurred,

For humanity's right to see in different colors, untold.

CounterIntelligence: The Story of Sister Alyonushka and Brother Ivanushka, 2022 
Directed by: Heidi Duckler

Category: Experimental, Web / New Media

Year & Country: 2022, United States

Duration: 31 min
Synopsis: CounterIntelligence: The Story of Sister Alyonushka and Brother Ivanushka is an episodic telenovela film told through dance in two parts, and screened live on Youtube, Facebook, and Twitch. CounterIntelligence explores the complexities of choice and identity through a contemporary reimagining of a Russian folktale told in a tongue in cheek melodrama-style that asks the question: who are we really? Based on the premise that we all live in some state of repression, this telenovela embraces the complexity of how our human emotions and physical bodies may never reflect who we really are, or think we are. The recognition of these constraints, real or imaginary, and the hope that we might live more freely has inspired the retelling of this Russian folktale. The recognition or lack thereof of our human behavior and the situations resulting from our unconscious actions is the premise of this tale.
