Petit chaperon Rouge (wolf-dating)
2009, video HD, 3' My version of the old tale about the dangers of dating a wolf. Text by Charles Perrault, played by French actors in the style of his time. This is a work of art, and it's the video comment of the Little Red Riding Hood original tale, written to advise young girls against violence and rape: the Big Bad Wolf is the rapist. The Grimm brothers and Disney sweetened it, but Perrault's meaning was exactly what I'm showing. YouTube thinks it must be age-restricted, though I don't believe people wait to be 18 to have sex . It is also a work against violence on women, and as such has been shown in art galleries and festivals. youtu.be/nNcKvMUKofw
