GUEST ARTIST INVITED BY PARÉIDOLIE’S SELECTION COMMITTEE
LE FILS QUI DESSINE / THE SON WHO DRAWS
FILM (COLOUR and BLACK & WHITE)
Starting from people I’ve met and places I’ve been through, I created a main character, “Pat”, a potential painter who wanders aimlessly around with me in some absurd but very real situations that emerge out of my personal fiction. Ever since his early childhood, Pat lived with his father in the middle of the forest, but he always felt his real life was elsewhere, so he went off to the nearest town. Snow lay on the ground everywhere. The film follows the outlines of a man’s destiny (or drawing)*, that of a human being becoming his true self.
* The word dessein/ plan or aim and hence ‘destiny’ is a homonym of dessin/ drawing (Translator’s note)
