Kacey Mottet Klein, Birth of an Actor

Year
2015
Country
Switzerland, France
Duration
14’ ’
Director
Ursula Meier

8 years. 12 years. 15 years old. A body is growing and developing in front of the camera, absorbing sensations and emotions, confronting its limits and its darker hidden parts. A body that through the years abandons itself to the character, transforming what could be seen as simple children's play-acting into the true work of an actor. A portrait of an adolescent who has created himself with the camera.
