Question humaine (La)

Fortnight 2007, Feature film, 2h23

Synopsis

Paris, the present day. Simon is a psychologist in the human resources department of a petrochemical complex. During a probe ordered by a top executive into one of the factory heads, Simon finds his perceptions disturbed and blurred in the most frightening way. The experience has an effect on his very being, influencing his thinking but also his intimacy and sensibility. The serene convictions that made him a rigorous technician begin to vacillate.

Director

Nicolas Klotz

Nicolas Klotz and Elisabeth Perceval work together to develop a writing and directing style that examines both contemporary upheavals and film form. In 2004, they created their production company, Petits et Grands Oiseaux. In addition to their film work, they have been active in the theater, in particular with the plays of Bernard-Marie Koltès, Didier-Georges Gabily, Heiner Müller, Sarah Kane, et Jean-Luc Nancy.
