Summary
"Self made is the debut documentary feature from Turner Prize winning artist Gillian Wearing, who placed an advert asking the public: 'Would you like to be in a film? You can play yourself or a fictional character. Call Gillian.' Of the hundreds of people who replied, seven appear in Self made, undertaking a Method acting workshop to delve into their own memories, fears and fantasies. Wearing makes the provocation that in a world where CCTV, reality television and 'fictionalised' documentary make us all into performers, reality and fiction are interchangeable commodities. Are we all playing a role, consciously or unconsciously?"--Container
