Synopsis:
Esmeray : artist, transsexual, Kurd, currently lives in Turkey. First, we filmed her as she walked the streets of Istanbul at night – her territory. Then, we asked her, for a short while, to slip back into the skin, or at least the costume, of the man she stopped being twenty years ago. In this guise, she followed the same routes. The two pictures are shown simultaneously. The film becomes like an experiment in self-shadowing. Split screen as an exploration of split personality?
