UK, 1999 (MIFF 2000, Experimental)
Director: Mie Nagai
A portrait of the child. Slowly the child's gaze is focused towards the direction of the audience. There is an uneasy moment of confrontation between the portrait and the audience. Established artist Nagai's first confrontation with cinema is also reminiscent of the pre-cinema diorama; concentrated specks of light surrounded by an unsettling stillness articulate a narrative of emotions.
