ENCOUNTER [2009]

Two girls, listening to music in a bar, caught my attention while exchanging some notes with a guy sitting on a sofa. Apparently they didn’t know each other. I decided to film them despite that the light conditions were very poor. While drinking and reading the note, his face become very expressive. I watched him intensively but I couldn’t decode the messages on the note, nor the relationship with the girls. His face became like a mask I could not penetrate.

This encounter, from which I was just a voyeur, got me really intrigued and I conjured lots of stories in my head trying to decipher what was written in that little note.

A deliberate ambiguous piece, for others to focus on what it is unseen or unsaid.
