Tête d'un Homme (Portrait of a Man)

a film by Alexandra Handal

Original Language: Arabic Subtitles: English
Short Film, Colour, HD, Sound, 2013, 3 min 42 sec


The voice of a man travels between the movement of colours and the blurry reflection of a hotel lobby. These shapes are created from the reflective glass frame of a Picasso lithograph reproduction of a woman. He tells the story of a heartbreaking departure and a serendipitous encounter. From the abstract and fragmented patterns, appears a portrait of a man.

This film is part of a series of shorts featured in the web documentary art, Dream Homes Property Consultants (DHPC).
