watch: The Knife 『Tooth for an Eye』

‘A Tooth For An Eye’ deconstructs images of maleness, power and leadership.

(”A Tooth For An Eye”は男性性、権力、リーダーシップのイメージを分解します。)

Who are the people we trust as our leaders and why? What do we have to learn from those we consider inferior?


In a sport setting where one would traditionally consider a group of men as powerful and in charge, an unexpected leader emerges.


A child enters and allows the men to let go of their hierarchies, machismo and fear of intimacy, as they follow her into a dance.


The child is powerful, tough and sweet all at once, roaring “I’m telling you stories, trust me”. There is no shame in her girliness, rather she possesses knowledge that the men lost a long time ago.
