Ismaïl Bahri summons the voice and thought of the common man who roams the streets of Tunis, as interpreters of affective territories that he once left behind and that he now rescues poetically, intellectually and politically in the film. Foyer.

In the streets, he films a blank sheet of paper, fixed a few centimeters from the lens of his camera. The experiment, apparently formal, is gradually thickened by the voices of passersby, intrigued by the strange artifice around which they gather.

The work is part of the show Tools, on display at Espaço Centro Porto Seguro, until August 5th. In an interview with ARTE!Brasileiros he spoke to Leonor Amarante.
