short film, 13min25





Man in the mirror, 2021, Raphaël Moreira Gonçalves

----------------------------------------------

Concurrently inspired by Michael Jackson’s song, whose video clips showed frenzied crowds in packed stadiums, and by YouTube star Buff Correll, who records himself singing karaoke alone in front of his bedroom mirror, Man in the Mirror is intended as a reflection on notions of the private and the public, the inward and the outward, but also on modern depictions of the black body, simultaneously fetishized and despised.
