We Have Many Names

Fortnight 1976, Feature film, 51mn

Synopsis

Two types of loneliness that give each other limts in order to protect themselves, that recognize each other…
One may conceive love in such a way. (…)
The most important thing is to learn how to grow and evolve, not only through a man but all the women together with their own capacities. (…)
My monsters are nice, they support me. Each time I have been tempted, they warned me : « Don’t do that, you can’t stop here, you must go further. How will you ever grow if you don’t ? »
