What image do we have of ourselves when we only get a partial transmission of our familial history? When we come back to the ground of our childhood after being gone for a long time? When we do not meet the criteria society is imposing on us? When we wish to free ourselves from the image that others have about us? It has been said a few times already: self-image is often linked to the images that represent us in cinema, on television and in the medias. Through four short films Self-Image addresses these questions in an intimate and moving way. Compiled by Lucien Jean-Baptiste.
