Birthday Suits

© Lucy Hilmer photographs herself every year on her birthday since 1974  wearing nothing but her white Lollipop underpants, shoes, and socks.

Lucy Hilmer is a photographer, filmmaker and poet who has filmed and photographed, at regular intervals, the ever changing lives of herself, her family and friends and documented them in multiple long-term series. Birthday Suits, where she photographs herself every year on her birthday wearing nothing but her white Lollipop underpants, shoes, and socks, made me tear up a little. it is just extraordinary.

The Runners

the-runners-documentary-banyak-films

i just want you to please watch this short film.

Pounding the tarmac through the seasons, a band of runners are brazenly challenged with intimate questions as they pace their routes. Liberated from responsibilities, their guards drop dramatically, releasing funny and brutally frank confessions, and weaving a powerful narrative behind the anonymous masses. A film by Matan Rochlitz & Ivo Gormley.
