Playfully collapsing the space between Hollywood Cinema and what Dao refers to as 'Domestic Cinema', The Protagonists explores relationships between representation and reality. Motifs of a clumsy animatronic hand, colorful smoke bombs, a backyard garden and a metronome become characters – protagonists, so to speak – in the deconstruction of filmic colonisation.
