To a Passer by

Super-8 film digitized, Black-and-white, 10 min, 2005

 

A film-still is exposed to the gaze of a young woman, she knows nothing about the film's origin or history, she simply comments on this singular, frozen-frame. Progressively her speech escapes her, taking on a new direction. This is an 'out-of-frame' story, a meander within an image and then into a film, a nomadic stroll through the city.
The film was inspired by the TAT (Thematic Apperception Test), a projective psychoanalysis test, in which patients are confronted by a series of images and from which they are asked to imagine a story.
