Highlight – Masking

We all must be familiar with the concept of masking by now. The filmmaker Lili Viràg Szuhay-Murciano takes it to its next logical (and unfortunately, realistic) step of masking your identity in order to make friends.

Masking is another inventive short that demonstrates just what you can do with a digital camera, some very simple setup, and a little ingenuity. It’s clever, colorful, and playful, and its satire of a step-by-step tutorial lends it almost limitless possibilities, though it doesn’t exhaust them. It’s kind of silly while also “masking” the sadder notion that it’s harder in reality to embrace your identity and make friends than any instructional manual could provide for.

Masking plays at the beginning of Shorts Block No. 4 in the virtual festival: https://watch.eventive.org/mentalfilmness2022/play/633f0d67e7c22000291085fc
