Mask And Mirror highlights an old painter in Paris to delve into the moments of life, the twilight years, and images of death. The film features the body and face of the elderly painter reflected in his own eyes, traces of good old days captured in photos, and the sceneries and natural landscapes of Paris. The painter shares short greetings with his old friends and thinks about his friends who are now only remembered as the tombs in the cemetery park. While featuring the passage of time, days in the twilight years and sympathy for death, this film makes the best of plaintive landscapes and the moments in which things transform into objet. This visual process gives medium for memories and sentiment of old man going through his twilight years, forlornness and transience, and the moments of condolence coming toward him. The painter’s working on images and this film itself are correlated as the process of leaving traces of each moment to be cherished amidst the passage of time. This film is the new short film produced by director Min Boung-hun, who recently released his full-length feature film Touch.
