HENRY (EXCERPT)

Super 16mm converted to digital with sound, 4.12min, 2017

 

Henry is an interrogation of an image., an intimate examination of a stranger's face. He is the artist's grandfather.

The film examines a portrait, which was painted from a photograph after the man himself had died. Henry was made to look a little older. The film describes the portrait to the man, asking how we might approach reanimated images when they are passed again through the film body and projected digitally on the screen.
