Shift of attention

Manon de Boer

DV, color, 4:3, English spoken, BE, 1999, 50’47”

Los Angeles, United States. A friend of the filmmaker sits down facing towards the camera. Without a word she listens to her own account, told by someone else. A single uninterrupted shot, without any editing cuts: her face shows her memory at work. At times she recognises her own words, and a little later it’s as if she hears her story for the first time. L.A. appears and disappears without ever entering the picture. Seeing becomes tangible in itself: gradually the screen changes in a mirror, in which a spectator and a ‘character’ look at one another.
