Moving Portrait of a friend, Natalia.
filmed at Bagatelle park in a film camera.
Capturing various characters inside her at once during a walk in a park, with staged location and clothes grabbing all surroundings to be part of her portrait.
Throughout, the video shows an uncertain ‘past’ feeling like a still portrait photo, more emphasized by the texture of the Bolex camera and off-pitch sounds. But also, adding some noticeable reference and slight cheekiness combined with sensitive improvised movements by Natalia, to bring currentness.
