The Projectionist 2010

3 mins United Kingdom Director. Lindsay Seers

In a rare interview, Lindsay Seers talks about her journey towards becoming a performance artist. Born in Mauritius, as a child Seers did not speak until the age of eight. In an act clearly linked to this troubled relationship to language, she later becomes a human camera by taking photographs with her mouth, until she is finally inspired to become a living film projector.
