Don’t Look at the Finger is a major new moving-image work by artist Hetain Patel.
The film follows a ceremonial encounter between a man and a woman, within a grand architectural setting.
The characters communicate through a feat of choreography that draws on martial arts and signed languages to express a ritualistic coming together.
Shot with production values that emulate Hollywood films, it features specially designed costumes and an original soundtrack by composer Amy May.
Supported by Arts Council England. Initial research supported by Jerwood Choreographic Research Project.
