An English teacher's life turns upside-down once a new student moves in across the street.
Damaged is the endearing tale of a friendship in the most remarkable of circumstances.
A haunted young man must hunt down a mysterious killer.
A retrospective based on an introspective vision, this stream of still pictures, unfolding to the rhythm of the voice-over (delivered by Steve Reinke), portrays a man who visually exposes his psychological “faults.” Recounting eighteen decisive moments in his life, and dissecting both his genetic and cultural heritage, the work delimits a transitory space in which each image crystallizes one of these indistinct marking points. Bringing together a number of collectively shared experiences, Damaged presents a series of significant events — some pleasant, others less so — evincing the complexity of the stages of life and offering models of childhood, sexuality and adulthood that denounce the transmission and acculturation of stigmatized identities. —Karl-Gilbert Murray, FIFA Catalogue
