An Untitled Portrait

1993, 3:17 min, b&w and color, sound

Dunye employs home movies, old film clips and her own spare visuals to sketch an oblique portrait of her older brother. The soundtrack, built around memory and anecdotes, grapples with the difficulties of portraiture while also revealing, almost as asides, pointed moments from Dunye's family history.

Camera: Nikki Harmon, Cheryl Dunye. A Dancing Girl Production.
