Self-Portrait is a tapestry of footage collected from surveillance cameras around the world, traveling from moment to moment—from the frozen storminess of winter, to the melt of spring, the lush heat of summer, and, finally, to the decay and cooling of autumn: the dawn of winter.

MUBI's take

Entirely comprised of surveillance videos, Joële Walinga’s mold-breaking documentary emphasizes the omnipresence of cameras in modern life. Though produced under unnatural conditions, the found footage, which moves with the rhythm of seasonal changes, also paints an arresting portrait of humanity.
