David Wharry
Born in the United Kingdom in 1950, lives and works in France since 1975.

Since 1978 David Wharry has been working on "General Picture", an evolving work currently composed of about twenty "episodes". These films can be shown together, separately or in different orders. "General Picture" explores the fundamental components of the cinematic spectacle and in particular its theatrical aspect, the notion of projection and the relationship between the projected image and the spectator. In this crime (wanted by its main accomplice, the spectator) "General Picture" involves different genres of commercial cinema, and its structure and narrative intertwining allow and generate this freedom of movement without guilt.
