‘Back Portrait’, a short film of five young artists from Serbia, Iran, England, USA and France, has come into being as an experiment based on playing with pictures and separate recording of sound. It is about tolerance, intolerance and fear manifested in small communities. People have an aversion to each other, guards are guarding monuments, dogs are barking.
