Freed Faces

Auteur documentary – 73′ – 2005


In June, 2002, citizens of Toulouse witnessed the unveiling of huge portraits on buildings in Empalot neighborhood. This marked the end of a long project that some of the housing-project residents participated in, despite their initial skepticism. For the rest of the city, these faces, which had been invisible due to customs and prejudice, were suddenly on display and visible far and wide. The documentary, Freed Faces follows the photographer Isabelle Tardigio’s work on representation. We are invited to explore the public housing project alongside her, as she interviews its residents about an artistic experience intended to create social connections.
