Movie Info

Who are we - and who do we think we are? How do we make the selves we present to the world - and who are we really, underneath the social masks we wear every day? These are some of the questions posed by Self Made, an extraordinary debut feature by acclaimed British artist Gillian Wearing. A hybrid undertaking, Self Made is at once documentary, artwork, social experiment and performance project - bringing together a diverse group from the British public, non-actors every one, and offering them the chance to discover something about themselves through performance.more

This is a glib, exploitative project that toys with vulnerable people. It is perhaps of limited interest to popular audiences, but of value to film and drama students.

Wearing's cast of non-professionals is engaging and charismatic.
