Valérie Massadian at IFFR
Mange, ceci est mon corps
Elegant lyrical surrealism and restrained fury in a political pamphlet, all rolled into one: a director from Haiti shows us in breathtaking tableaux vivants the dramatic colonial heritage of his parents' birthplace. With Sylvie Testud and a great amateur cast.
The unusual Nana is filmed from the perspective of a child. Four-year-old Nana walks with a childlike purity through a world that is partly paradise, partly hard and realistic. An intimate and overwhelming debut by the artist and photographer Valérie Massadian.
Milla and Leo are teenage misfits, sleeping in empty houses or in the back of a car. They hang on to each other at any cost. An intimate film about growing up in dire straits, where bleak everyday life is filled with peculiar beauty.
