MEN in charge
MEN in charge is a film that explores the creation and presentation of the live performance It began with watching. In doc(mock)umentary form, MEN in charge depicts how kloetzel&co. was able to create a brutally humorous take on both gender and the U.S. political landscape as ‘alternative facts’ and outlandish acts took centre stage. Co-created with the cinematographer and director Linnea Swan, MEN in charge offers an entertaining and honest portrait of a sector enthralled with power.
Subscribe to the kloetzel&co. YouTube channel to see all three episodic trailers. Two sneak previews of the film were presented by Wild Dogs international Screendance Festival and through ReLoCate’s The Experiment #4 series.
Since its release on January 20, 2021 (U.S. Inauguration Day), MEN in charge has been selected for presentation through the Toronto International Women Film Festival, Spring Grove International Film Festival (MN), and the ARTS x SDGs Festival (NY).
The film is based on the work It began with watching that toured to over ten theatre spaces and alternative sites in Canada between 2016-20.
