Q&A Samira Elagoz

For the past years Samira Elagoz has been collecting intimate encounters with strangers, committing these to film that strikes a delicate balance between fiction and reality. Through Craigslist, an internationally active internet network, Elagoz arranges one-on-one meetings with a wide variety of men in three different cities and explores how the camera influences intimacy between two strangers: The documentarian and the subject. The set up is simple – she brings a camera, and films how they get to know each other. Every encounter is real and unscripted. Instead of making a film she enters one. And shares something oddly real with them.
