Any Special Peculiarities

UK, 1983 (MIFF 1984)

Director: Graham Dean

A humorous commentary on the Bntish passport category "Distinguishing Marks", previously known as "Any Special Peculiarities".By dissolving photographs and paintings of himself, Dean illustrates the myriad of descriptions attributed to the human face (bull neck, doe eyes, hook nose, cauliflower ears, etc).
