The blurb: Nulepsy: the pathological need to be nude. An elderly man recounts his life story characterised by the rare, exceptional and inconvenient disease he suffers from.
This is a mock documentary – there’s no such thing as “nulepsy” – but the director does a great job of using documentary tropes that it comes off as perfectly serious and believable. In doing so she “exposes the fragility of documentary truth” (Sight and Sound review). Shot in 2011 on 16mm film, it’s an experimental work that screened at numerous festivals.
