A woman is walking in the dark. She is moving towards the camera, the camera is moving towards her. From the very beginning, the sweeping movement brings to mind the dolly zoom in Vertigo. Here, only the absence of a setting, the darkness around the character, hinder our sensations. The dual movement builds up with other alternations: breath in, breath out, come closer, step back, in front, behind, alone, accompanied... This variation about self-image is a self-portrait. A selfie? (GG)
