26th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: kinema ikon, Iosif Stroia
original title: Autoportret
running time: 5 min.
synopsisFootage of the gradual installation and deinstallation of a private exhibition of calligraphic self-portraits hung on the gate of a cramped backyard is intercut with a short shot cut from a family film showing a close-up of a child's face in an open landscape. In contrast, the face of the adult artist is not visible; even his body gradually disappears under the layers of sketches.
