This, the second film of the continuing autobiographical Duplicity series, is composed of superimpositions much as the mind ‘dupes’ remembered experience into some semblance of, say, composed surety rather than imbalanced accuracy – as thought may even warp ‘scene’ into symmetry, or ‘face’ into multitudinous mask. What will have been becomes what will be being. I’ve tried to ‘give the lie’ to this genesis of all white-lying. – S.B.
