Heavily stylised with a cinematic aesthetic, REN brings sociocultural issues of gender stereotyping forward with a short fashion film. Produced in association with Tirade magazine, Gender Bender is a cinematic projection of a young man's journey of discovery towards his gender identity.
The video depicts the man’s night out where he is experimenting with his gender by taking an androgynous stand. He rejects the typical gender norms of masculinity and femininity by presenting himself as gender neutral. In the club is he surrounded by an array of characters each exploring their own identities and alter egos. He feels encouraged by the inviting darkness that the club brings and begins to challenge societies restrictive gender roles by morphing between them.
