Le Film de mon père

documentary / 73’ / 2022


Le Film de mon père is my first film. The one my father always dreamt I would make. And perhaps, that’s the issue. One day he bought a video camera and started filming himself daily. His goal: to offer me this autobiographical footage in order for me to make my first film. The diary of a lonely widower, living with my adopted brother and sister on the family property "La Belle Poule". I film my father, his desire to transmit, my sister avoiding him, my brother trying to find his own way. And me, in the middle of it all, making a film as an inevitable step to move on from my youth.
