‘Eye of the Dawn’ Lost found footage is the start of an exploration into the legendary Mata Hari, the exotic dancer shot as an alleged double agent a year before the end of WW1. Taking as a starting point the fact that there is no footage in existence of Mata Hari in motion, and the fact that she was first and foremost known as a dancer, creating this ‘lost’ footage using a 16mm camera is a step towards a creation of a ghost of Mata Hari all these years later. This experimental short documentary is the beginning of a longer collaboration between performance/producer Sarah Saeed and me.
