A Man and a Camera

  • Netherlands
Audio Tracks 

An enigmatic entity roams the Dutch hinterlands, silently pointing a camera at all that it encounters. Soon it finds itself standing in front of a doorway. Met with an uninvited, inscrutable camera operator, how will the region’s inhabitants respond? Amusing and unsettling, mundane and otherworldly, “A man and a camera” is an endlessly surprising provocation: an upending of documentary power dynamics, an inquiry into human nature, a rendezvous with the real.
