Thunder in my heart (2013-2014)

“Thunder in my heart” is an experimental documentary and phenomenological study about a female monté jockey at a Stockholm racing track. Utilizing small video cameras, the film seeks to capture how human and animal merge during a horse race. It takes its inspiration from the famous Goethe phrase – “What is inside is also outside” and intends to implement this in its imagery. Meaning that the jockey’s as well as the horse’s inner worlds and emotions will be externalized and translated onto film. Furthermore it strives to explore new ways of spectator immersion and thereby present a physical, sensory and corporeal experience of a horse race.”
