DescriptionA Goat Named Tension is an audacious, witty and expertly filmed visual and verbal play around the expression 'I've got your goat'. At the beginning of the film, two women in 'nanny costume', representing the two female protagonists, are looking for their 'kids'. The play on meaning amplifies the tension between work and desire experienced by the two women who are in a relationship. This non-conventional narrative plays with various forms of tension, acoustic expectations and over-the-top melodrama.
