Simone Fattal chooses to expose herself to a camera, accepting the approximations and the confrontation. She proceeds through hesitations, in fragments. With as much sincerity as possible, she tries to find a kind of clarity. It is a search for one person, but as part of a universal self. Because she seems to expect, above all, a form of lucidity from this “production” of her own image – the cinema thus becoming the medium, or rather the special condition for making a reality appear (or better still, make possible), which can only be grasped, be rendered visible, according to its own balance of light and shadow.
