Fictional Tantrums is a series of re-enactments of scenes in movies. The particular fragments of film that I chose to re-enact are moments of contained hysteria in which a fictional character experiences a frustrating friction between their social role and how they ‘really’ feel.

‘Cameron’ is a re-enactment of a fragment from the classic eighties teenage movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. ‘Janine’ of a scene in the thirty-somethings romcom He’s Just Not That Into You.
