51th Directors’ Fortnight May 15-25, 2019

Le Sujet

Fortnight 2018, Short film, 10 min

Synopsis

An animator dissects his own body, extracting memories, emotions and fears that will nurture his work. As he cuts into his skin, various symbolic objects recalling his past emerge. Reaching the heart, he succeeds in identifying the burden he’s been dying to cast off.

Director

Patrick Bouchard

Patrick Bouchard directed his first stop-motion puppet film, Jean Leviériste (1998), as part of his degree and his first professional film, The Brainwashers, in 2002. Then followed Dehors novembre (2005), Subservience (2007) and Bydlo (2012), which was selected at both TIFF and Annecy.
