In Camera

64th TIFF: Greek Premiere

The boundaries between the “real” and the imaginary get blurred, intertwined, and redefined in this British debut that traces the path of a young actor determined to take center stage in his own life. Tired of awkward auditions, repeated rejections, and playing dead bodies in TV series, Aiden decides it’s time to take on a new role, away from the cameras, wanting to construct the narrative of his life himself. And probably without being prepared for the consequences. In a world where even our own self-image may often seem like a construct, In Camera unfolds as a moral and intellectual puzzle about the fragmented nature of modern existence and even reality itself. A sardonic and often humorous, existential quasi-thriller about the roles we are called upon to play and the fluid, disorienting nature of the here and now.
