Blank Girl

Blank Girl

Only a face 
of a woman

The face of cinema

Only a surface



Shimmers in the dark

Shadows of the night

We are calling to you

Come, and haunt us.

Director Biography - Alain Tjiong

Alain Tjiong (The Netherlands, 1991) has just graduated with a Master of the Audiovisual Arts (film) degree from the School of Arts (KASK) in Ghent, Belgium. His films are first and foremost a means of personal expression, a way to communicate his feelings and his thoughts with a audience. While still operating in the field of narrative fiction, he is always searching for the bounderies of narrative cinema and trying to rediscover its (lost) relevance.

Director Statement

A film is like a river, an endless stream of thought and feeling. It can take you anywhere anytime. By operating on the borders of narrative fiction I am trying to grasp this concept that is designed around a central theme: A cinema of desires that is expressed in its most romantic form - the formation of the romantic couple which is the essence of (the old) Hollywoodcinema. The whole world of the film is infected with the desire for romance. Is this ideal within our reach or just an illusion? A blank surface where our desires are projected back at us. The face of cinema.
