Looks back over shoulder (05:05), 2013

Looks back over shoulder explores how human subjectivity is woven into social behaviour and in particular how this becomes apparent in the urban environment. The camera follows the undisclosed separate journeys of a man and a woman. These scenes are interlaced with images of the cities buildings and advertisements, describing an aesthetic surface of Bucharest, where the film was made. This work explores in visual terms a struggle of post-communist Romania to form an identity in relation to Western Europe with an emphasis upon the surreal presence of advertisement in the city.
