    De Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam commissioned this film by makeup artist/photographer/filmmaker Ellis Faas, asking Ellis to draw inspiration from traditional masks from the Ivory Coast. Ellis explains her approach: "Since ancient times, humans have been using masks - in order to express power and authority; to feel self-confident; to stand out or to hide behind; to not be recognised and disappear into the masses. Not only by traditional masks, but also by disguising and ornamental elements such as clothing, jewellery, hair and makeup. But can one truly change one's identity, or is it merely a temporary transformation? And who or what defines someone's true identity? Is it the mask, is it the human being behind the mask, or maybe even the creator of the mask?" The triptych can be seen "live" until February 15, 2015 at De Nieuwe Kerk during the exhibition "Magical Africa – Masks and Sculptures from Ivory Coast. The Artists Revealed": http://www.nieuwekerk.nl/en/
