Looking At You With Contempt (2009)

31 min 17 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"An intimate opening scene of tender camera work that carefully follows a young woman getting ready for work slowly gives way to something more sinister. Looking At You With Contempt has a shape shifting structure that keeps the audience at a distance, offering only elusive clues as to the cause of the protagonist’s distress."
