Hello Tau Tau Menghan! Welcome to SIFF

 

1.It is a brilliant movie. What message do you want to pass on with this movie?

Thank you for the warm welcome! ‘PINKY SWEAR – Whatever She Wants’ aims to convey a message of women’s liberation, highlighting the importance of empowerment. While exploring the theme, the movie also delves into the potential toxicity that can arise within the feminist movement, encouraging viewers to reflect on the balance between true feminism and avoiding extremes.

 

2.Whatever she wants – hopefully this movie is about women’s liberation as in some cases feminism gets too toxic. What’s your opinion about the line between true feminism and toxicity in the name of feminism?

In ‘PINKY SWEAR – Whatever She Wants,’ we intentionally explore a nuanced perspective on women’s liberation. While historical and societal factors, including male domination, undoubtedly contribute to the suppression of women, the movie delves deeper. It uses the powerful confrontation between characters Naomi and Ginger to highlight the importance of women freeing themselves from predefined identities. The film suggests that the journey towards liberation involves challenging internalized notions of ‘what is woman’ and ‘how to be a woman.’ In the context of the movie, the ending emphasizes that the focus shifts from external influences, including men, to the individual’s self-discovery and empowerment.

 

3.Women are caged and suppressed and not allowed to have their own opinions. Do you feel that it’s all because of male domination?

Certainly, the PInky Swear movie suggests that societal norms and historical structures have often contributed to the suppression of women. While not all instances can be solely attributed to male domination, the movie does shed light on the impact of such power dynamics in restricting women’s freedom and voices.

 

4.Sometimes women are women’s greatest enemy. What’s your take on this concept?

The concept of women being each other’s greatest enemy is an intriguing aspect explored in the film. It delves into the complexities of female relationships and the societal pressures that can foster competition among women. It’s a nuanced exploration of how ingrained beliefs and expectations can sometimes lead to internal conflicts.

 

5.Challenging preconceived notions is good, but has the world progressed enough to understand this concept?

Absolutely, I believe ‘PINKY SWEAR’ has the potential to resonate with a diverse audience, including males. The themes explored are universal and touch upon human experiences, promoting understanding and empathy regardless of gender.

 

6.Do you think this movie will connect with the male audience?

Absolutely, I believe ‘PINKY SWEAR’ has the potential to resonate with a diverse audience, including males. The themes explored are universal and touch upon human experiences, promoting understanding and empathy regardless of gender.

 

7.What do you think the male reaction would be with this type of movie? Would it be taken positively or would it be conceived as a negative portrayal of the male gender?

The portrayal of male characters in the movie is nuanced, from the name ‘Mr.Salami, Mr.Treasure King ‘,you can tell that I only set the male characters to reflect a spectrum of behaviors. While some may view it positively as an opportunity for self-reflection and growth, others might find it challenging. The intention is not to stereotype but to prompt a thoughtful examination of societal norms and individual actions

 

8.Women are mostly projected as victims rather than heroes. What’s your take on this concept?

The movie challenges the conventional narrative by portraying women as multifaceted individuals, capable of both resilience and heroism. It encourages a shift away from simplistic victimhood narratives, aiming to showcase the strength and agency of female characters.

 

9.As a woman do you think that as a man achieving many things gets easier?

No, I don’t think a man achieving  many things gets easier, each gender has it’s undeniable advantages and disadvantages. While acknowledging that societal expectations and challenges may differ for men and women, my movie Pinky Swear does not assert that achieving success is inherently easier for either gender. It aims to provoke conversations about equality and the varied hurdles individuals face on their journeys.

 

10.We loved the movie. Hope you enjoyed working with SIFF too!

Thank you for the kind words! Working with SIFF has been a fantastic experience. Your commitment to showcasing diverse and thought-provoking films aligns with our vision for ‘PINKY SWEAR.’ It’s been a pleasure to be a part of this platform and share our film with such an appreciative audience.
