Cops Are Actors
Tova Mozard

Somewhere in the hills of Los Angeles, we meet four actors who portray the police profession, through narrative and staging.

Director Tova Mozard: ”-I wanted to deconstruct and explore the police officer we know from the movies, like stripping a schablon, to see were the schablon meets the humanbeing and how the humanbeing uses different roles, exercising the profession.”

About the artist

Tova Mozard

Tova Mozard lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.

Curiosity and unveiling narratives are two main motifs in Tova Mozard’s work. Since graduating with an MFA from Malmö Art Academy in 2003, Mozard has built a growing repertoire of photography and video work, which has been shown in solo and group shows throughout Sweden and internationally. Many of her videos show a fascination with people on the fringes of society. During her time in Los Angeles, she sought out unique people drawn to the bright Hollywood lights and dreams of superstardom. In these videos, Mozard explores the relationship between the camera, the entertainer/narrator and her self as artist/documenter. The Big Scene finds Mozard turning the camera around to face her own childhood and family history.
