Synopsis

Filmmaker’s self-portrait, asking us & herself hard questions. Aurore Clément: a stand-in/proxy, a glam counterpart to Akerman, sporting a drawn-on moustache.What’s cinema for? Who’s it for? If the Mosaic prohibition on making graven images includes film images, where does a Jewish director stand?
