This video, a trailer for Faceless, a 2007 film by artist Manu Luksch, comes courtesy of a recent conversation with Darius Cuplinskas of OSF. It counterpoints Respectful Cameras, the Ken Goldberg one I posted a couple of weeks ago quite nicely, I think. Here’s a PDF and more details about the concept behind and making of the film, here’s the manifesto for CCTV filmmakers, and here’s a BBC report about it.

It feels somewhat (Egoyan + Marker) x von Trier… But that is, I admit, a bit reductive. I really, really want to see the whole thing…
