Synopsis:
'All about me' is about the feelings of guilt when desiring pornographic images,
and the futile attempt to contain those desires through conciously sought oversaturation.
The film approaches the theme through different poetical episodes from the life of an apple.
The apple is born out of the sea, and it is eaten, traded and mechanically processed until it
flies toward heaven.
The use of stop-motion animation and simple Super8 tricks creates a nostalgic impressivity
that both supports and intercepts the disarming subjectivity of the author through poetry.


This film is an attempt of upfront self-exploring filmmaking, in hope to find something in me which is of public interest. This film feels a bit weird nowadays, as the subject matter was of strong significance at the time of shooting (2005) and became much less important over time. But in all honesty this film also helped me at that time to liberate myself.
Having said that, the film is not meant to be a film about me (despite the title), I was trying to find something basic and profound about the nature of attraction of pornographic material which translates into some truth about longings and desires.

Buying the film would support my art and help me doing new projects. I hope this post is not understood as some die-hard commercial announcement.

From a technical standpoint: the film footage is captured with a Beaulieu 4008ZMII, a Nizo 4080 and a Eumig Nautica on Kodachrome and Vision 500T (the candle footage). Transfer is DIY.
All the best,
- Mathis
