a short film by GRIET TECK
In this sober handheld yet static black & white portrait, Griet Teck follows the daily rituals of
her autistic brother Johan. Poetry and brutal reality blend together in a very personal and
touching story where humanity is the central theme.
"Griet Teck dares, in these times of art for art’s sake, or the opposite, art criticism by means of art, to choose for a small personal story. In this sober black/white short she follows the monotone days of her autistic brother. The repetitions in her editing are the repetitions in his life. She portrays him in a very raw, piercing way and transcends in that way the genre of documentary.
