Maladeta - - - (2020)
writing and film workshop - L'Astrada (Marciac)
Maladeta is a peak in the Pyrenees whose name symbolically represents a "cursed" and "inaccessible" mountain. We used this name to work for a month with a group of teenagers. What is a place? What is a being? Learning to look, questioning what we don't see, what is induced in the landscape. Between documentary and fiction, working on a way to make cinema by wandering, by instinct.
Workshop led by Clément Bondu & Pierre Giafferi.
Production Ce Beau Hasard / Coproduction : Année Zéro, L'Astrada-Marciac
Devotion - - - (2019)
École Nationale Supérieure d'Art Dramatique de Paris (ESAD) / 73rd Avignon Festival
Dévotion is a play dedicated to the failed heroes of the 21st century, to buried revolts, to failed loves, to lost illusions... at a time of European doubt, facing the resurgence of nationalist parties, Dévotion paints a fragmented portrait of a generation grappling with its heritage and its ghosts (wars, colonialism, etc.) in a fresco where the spectres of Ophelia and H. intertwine, The Idiot, The Woman Who Lost Her Heart, Animal-Baal, Lulu, fascist gentlemen, writers, tramps, prostitutes and gravediggers come to invite you to a Festival of the Dead, where the souls of animals, forests and stones mingle with the dreams of the living.
