Face does not just refer to the human face, but could also mean the face of a building: the façade that “adorns” a house. In Sasha Pirker’s short film, these two meanings come at one another from diametrically opposed positions. On one hand Pirker is trying to show the building as a whole, plucking out individual fragments in an entirely subjective manner; fragments which the viewer then has to piece together. On the other hand, she selects the clips of the building such that the individual faces of the passers-by remain hidden. In The Face all entities, both architectural and human, exist without their primary identifying feature: their face. (Dietmar Schwärzler)

This film is part of the special program Filme von Sasha Pirker and of the short film program Schwere Augen.
