LIMINALITY - ARAZOO KADIR + SARA AMIN / by Emma Barnaby

"In anthropology, liminality (from the Latin word līmen, meaning "a threshold") is the quality of ambiguity or disorientation that occurs in the middle stage of rituals, when participants no longer hold their pre-ritual status but have not yet begun the transition to the status they will hold when the ritual is complete. During a ritual's liminal stage, participants "stand at the threshold" between their previous way of structuring their identity, time, or community, and a new way, which the ritual establishes.

Just what does it mean to be part what we call the Liminal Generation? This movie explores just one personal exploration of cultural, societal and personal reflections on identity - and how identifying with the threshold can be a fulfilling act."
