FACELESS (UK / AT 2007, 50 min)
directed by Manu Luksch
voiceover by Tilda Swinton

FACELESS uses CCTV images obtained under the terms of the UK Data 
Protection Act as 'legal readymades (objets trouvés)'. Legislation 
requires that the privacy of other persons be protected when data is 
released – for CCTV recordings, this is typically done by obscuring 
their faces. Much of FACELESS is driven by the 'Manifesto for CCTV 
Filmmakers'. The manifesto states, amongst other things, that additional 
cameras are not permitted on location, since they are rendered redundant 
by omnipresent video surveillance.

SYNOPSIS: In an eerily familiar society, the reformed RealTime calendar
dispenses with past and future, and all citizens are faceless. A woman 
panics
when she wakes up with a face. With the help of the Spectral Children she
unveils the lost power and history of the human face and begins the 
search for
its future.

soundtrack by mukul, piano music by Rupert Huber, choreography by The 
Ballet
Boyz, co-produced by Amour Fou Filmproduktion and Ambient Information 
Systems
