Levi Felix Holton - BA (Hons) Filmmaking

Bird Of Paradise

Levi Holton is a visual artist, filmmaker and storyteller, using primarily film and performance to address themes considering the transgender/ trans-masculine identity. He has an interest in exploring the human form and personal relationships between mind and body. His work largely uses symbolism through the positioning and presence of the body to explore social or perceived identity, with abstract visuals being used as a metaphorical and suggestive presentation of internal worlds and identity. The aim of Holton’s work is to present the AFAB body and mind as a self owned tool which can be used to open conversation into issues and questions surrounding gender, the possession of body and identity.

My film, Bird of Paradise, considers the many identities of self I have as a queer and trans person, the multiple faces of expression which can be adorned. I consider masculinity and femininity as both battling forces and lovers; through this film, the two halves find connection and disconnection.
