Barry Doupé

2008, 92:00 minutes, colour, German with English Subtitles


Ponytail follows several inflicted characters and recounts the ways in which they find resolve. A series of scenarios held together by an attraction to failure and its spectacle describe the characters’ malfunction – their inability to fulfill personal desire.

Compelled by the consequences and rewards of their attempts they question their own trajectory.
Ponytail presents a unique society of characters that employs elements of melodrama, performative monologue and traditional narrative structure.
