A young photographer explores his sexuality after a surprising romantic advance. “Self Portrait,” directed by by Gus Aronson, is a sensual experimental film which spotlights and inverts the concept of the photographer’s gaze. During a portrait session, a photographer and model experience a lustful spark, though the photographer seems unsure of this sudden development. They spend some time together at a bar, then to a dance club, and on to a motel. Aronson leans into the minimal and vague and finds a nice balance of the artful, provocative and contemplative. -KA.
