Lilla Szász: The Tribal Chief (2015-2016)

’The Tribal Chief’ is a monologue photo-diary. It flashes memories from the life of a middle-aged man; starting from the loneliness of childhood, through the parental disinheritance following his coming out and later leading us to public toilets, sex cinemas and the gloomy world of People’s Park. The main character is fulfilling a mission: he is chasing happiness obsessively. The side characters, with whom he meets temporarily during his exploration are mostly unknown. Lilla Szász’ latest project provides a glimpse to a story where the concepts of loneliness and intimacy become relative.
