The Man With no Face

The man with no Face

Video

6’40”

Based upon the novel “The Land at the End of the world” (“Os Cús de Judas”) written by the Portuguese writer António Lobo Antunes, the video juxtaposes two narratives. On the one hand, we hear in voice over the traumatic war recollections of a young man, whereas on the other hand, we see a male body trying to wash clean of a ubiquitous black substance.

The tension between these two narratives symbolically evokes the man’s attempt to wash clean of his disturbing memories and forget them.
