Guy Sherwin's film performance was part of a film programme presented by Close-Up in 2009.

The filmmaker's live interaction with his on-screen image which is projected onto a hand-held mirrored screen.The screen is white one side and mirrored the other, and is used by the performer to either 'catch' the projected image, or reflect it around the cinema space. The image on Film is of the same activity happening in a sunlit landscape. Visual echoes are set up between the live event and the recorded one.
