Matilde S

Matilde S. is a compilation of more than 10 years of casting videos recorded by Matilde Søes Rasmussen while working as a fashion model. A casting video is a brief introduction video of a model performing specific tasks by request of a commercial client. Some videos were recorded by herself, while others were captured by her modeling agencies. Matilde S. wonders: how can you ‘be yourself’ when you are employed to do the exact opposite - to perform a role?
