Silhouette Secrets is a one hour documentary film in which a modern day silhouettist takes a journey back in time to explore the history of his shadowy art. He is promoted to ask the question:

“Where do silhouettes come from?”

As the journey progresses he meets the world’s fastest silhouette artist, who challenges him to a duel of scissors. Cindi Rose set a world record in the 1980s by cutting 144 silhouettes in just one hour.
