Cyril Schäublin, "Le visage tue tu mérites", short film, 2018, 4 Min, 1,77:1, 2018, Le Manoir Art Collection, Filmstill

How do we live our lives and how does life chance our faces? Inside an elevator in a big metro station there is a mirror mounted. Passengers keep chancing between platforms. For a fleeting moment they are left alone with themselves and their reflection.

"La nature vous donne le visage que vous avez à vingt ans. La vie façonne le visage que vous avez à trente ans. Mais à cinquante ans tu as le visage que tu mérites."
