In the last few years I have been making a series of cinematic portraits of young filmmaking friends acting as collaborators in portraiture.There is always a surprise as to what the Bolex reveals of a person that is not revealed with the naked eye.This happened in a very strong way with Jacob while shooting Pavane. But I was not prepared for the surprise that took place when I looked through the camera at Linda. I suddenly saw her as never before and asked without hesitation if she were Aztec. She responded enthusiastically that indeed she was, in fact, her middle name is Izcali, after the important Aztec festival month of rebirth. N.D.
