Henry is an interrogation of an image, an intimate examination of a face. He is the artist's grandfather.
The film examines a portrait, which was painted from a photograph after the man himself had died. Henry was made to look a little older. The film describes the portrait to the man, asking how we might approach reanimated images when they are passed again through the film body and projected digitally on the screen.
Rhea Storr is an artist filmmaker born in Leeds, UK. She lives and works in London. Working between 16mm and digital Storr questions the slippages that occur when a language performs across cultures, questioning where images fail us and where they resist us.
