A film by Ann Oren
Year|2022 Duration|86 min

World Premiere|Locarno Film Festival


The introvert Foley artist Eva struggles to create sounds for a commercial featuring a horse. Empowered by a horsetail growing out of her body, she lures a botanist into an affair, through a game of submission. Piaffe is a visceral journey into control, gender, and artifice


Born in Tel Aviv, Ann Oren is a visual artist and filmmaker. She studied Film (BA) and Fine Arts (MA) at The School of Visual Arts, NY. Her artworks have been presented in institutions including The Moscow Biennial for Young Art, The Hammer museum, The Tel-Aviv Museum, Anthology Film Archives, Apexart and KINDL - Zentrum für zeitgenössische Kunst.
