Un homme perdu

Fortnight 2007, Feature film, 1h37

Synopsis

Thomas Koyré, a French photographer, travels around the world in search of extreme experiences. He crosses paths with Fouad Saleh, a strange man with a failing memory. The Frenchman tries to uncover his story and travels with him for a while through the sulphurous and secret East. The experience leaves him a changed man. The character of Koyré was heavily inspired by the photographic travels of Antoine d’Agata, who served as a advisor on Danielle Arbid’s script.
