As You Like It

Paula OneČ› | Romania | 2012 | 22'


If you could pick only one photograph of yourself for the next generations to remember you, which one would you choose? “As You Like It” brings together stories from people facing their gravestone picture while still being alive. How would you recognize your 82 years old grandparents in the graveyard if the gravestone portrait shows them as 16 years old adolescents? Some of the characters choose a photograph from their youth and others plan to change the existing one because they are afraid of being misjudged. While the audience discovers the graveyard as a public photo album and a living social document, they are concerned with their own perfect image to-be-remembered.
