Synopsis

I don’t wish to be impolite, but I am very reluctant to write about the films I work on. I could have chosen a literary form in the first place. Maybe the best advice for the filmmaker is just to start the projector. If a film has a voice, it will speak. The writing can be safely felt in the hands of the writers.
But perhaps it is appropriate to say a word about the way we worked. We believe that making films is a social act. Our aim is to collaborate in the task of hammering out a common approach to what could be called « humanist » cinema. In sharing the authorship, we help and teach each other, and we learn most from the people that whose worlds we invade, people who are not filmmakers at all.
