The Children of Uzaï, AntiNarcissus

Mireille Kassar
France, Lebanon 2014 / 16’

Shot in the southern part of Beirut in the spring of 2013, The Children of Uzaï, AntiNarcissus shows children swimming. And while their movement is the main compositional element that fills the frame, they are not the film’s protagonists. Kassar is less interested in the subject that is being recorded and more in the elasticity of the image, its openness to transformation, after which it begins to resemble photography or painting.
