An enigmatic entity roams the Dutch hinterlands, silently pointing a camera at all that it encounters. Soon it finds itself standing in front of a doorway. Met with an uninvited, inscrutable camera operator, how will the region’s inhabitants respond?
Amusing and unsettling, mundane and other worldly, A man and a camera is an endlessly surprising provocation, an inquiry into human nature and a rendezvous with the real.
