Boris Lehman is a unique filmmaker who apparently never leaves his camera. His own life is a continuous film that he never stops making. My Seven Places is another essential chapter in this poetic, imaginative, ironic, melancholy and philosophical chronicle of Lehman's existence. A film that is autobiographical and universal at once, in which Lehman looks at himself both directly and indirectly.
As Lehman says, 'My Seven Places starts at the moment I was evicted from several places which are dear to me. They served me well as homes, both as places for living and working. This was the start of my urban wandering, which would take me ten years - a journey of 300,000 kilometres - before returning just about to my starting point. The adventure was both physical and metaphysical… My Seven Places is an essay about passing time, embellished by a jumble of reflections both light and serious; finally, it is an attempt to simply exist.'
