COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Janvier 2016. L'histoire amoureuse qui m'avait amené dans le village d'Alsace où je vis est terminée depuis six mois. À 45 ans, je me retrouve désormais seul, sans voiture, sans emploi ni réelle perspective d'avenir, en plein cœur d'une nature luxuriante dont la proximité ne suffit pas à apaiser le désarroi profond dans lequel je suis plongé. La France, encore sous le choc des attentats de novembre, est en état d'urgence. Je me sens impuissant, j'étouffe d'une rage contenue. Perdu, je visionne quatre à cinq films par jour. Je décide de restituer ce marasme, non pas en prenant la caméra mais en utilisant des plans issus du flot de films que je regarde.

The flow of images is endless, snippets of hundreds of feature films follow each other in rapid succession. For the entire duration of this found-footage essay, they illustrate the filmmaker’s voiceover narration, which is akin to a diary covering the period between April and October 2016 and is equally delivered at speed. After separating from his partner, with whom he moved to a remote part of Alsace years before, the filmmaker lives there in isolation, without a car, without a job, without a future. He talks of this solitary existence, his depression and panic attacks, his obsession with watching vast numbers of films (at once a blessing and a curse), the loss of his father, a visit from filmmaker friends from Portugal, the terror attacks in Nice, the death of Prince, whether activism makes sense or no sense at all, film work in the first person singular, refugees in the Mediterranean and clearing out his flat before his planned move to Paris, which offers the light at the end of the tunnel.
