Gil (The First Thing Is Your Name)

  • French 5 mins
  • Director | Eva Giolo

This film is currently not available.   

 this evocative video Giolo combines a few fragments from her personal family archive with found footage and home movies. At the core of this film collage is the artist's search for the face of her deceased twin brother, who disappeared from life without leaving behind any recording on photo or film. Paradoxically his absence is rendered perceptible through a profusion of images, turning an absence into a presence. An indirect portrait as the confirmation of an existence.
