Artwork text

This film presents most clearly the situation of filming for both model and filmmaker, showing the facial expression -- first loving, then hurt -- of the filmmaker’s mother, who is the only one to disobey the filmmaker’s instructions not to leave the frame. The filmmaker blushes at the tender but calculated touch.
