What is looking at us, when we look at the faces of cinema? Two video essays that mirror each other, take us on a both analytical and poetic investigation of film history. “Facing Film” shows us how by looking closely at one of the most famous faces of cinema a completely different face starts to appear, while “Reproduction Interdite” asks what is there to see when movie characters turn their back to us. Will we recognize ourselves and our own obsession with film as art when facing these images?
