the snackbar

the snack bar is another experiment i did on being someone else, during the master program from akv st. joost. during my trip to minsk i imagined myself being a local lady. but what does she look like? googling ‘lady from belarus’ brought me to a mail-order bride website, and i decided then and there: that’s what i need to become. having my very white-russian-looking pictures taken I visited the agency and before i knew it, i was on the website, ready to be ordered. unfortunately i didn’t find my future husband that trip, so instead i mingled in public spaces. the short shows an unscripted scene of ‘playing the field’ without the advantage of actually speaking the same language.
