Ready to Snap

(5-8 min.)

"Ready to Snap" examines bodies in extreme situations and observes their reactions when they have to face an extreme situation intentionallly or unintentionally. Ready - the moment of tense expectation, of lurking and provocation. Snap - bodies snap, freeze, flee or attack." - Patricia Mai
