A one-minute silent version of This Man screened as part of the Toronto Urban Film Festival in 2012.

THIS MAN
Owen Eric Wood (Canada)
video, 2012, 2 min. 14 sec.

Through a series of images and declarative statements, a portrait of a man is constructed. However, the artificial delivery of the voice-over narration and the illusion of stillness created by the video suggest that what is being seen and heard should not be taken at face value. In doing so, the viewer is asked to consider, perhaps question, the truth in biographies.
