Suzy dances, and the camera dances with her.
The light dances. The textures sparkle on the film.
And Suzy shines.

This essay is about my solitary wanderings in the summer heat. Going from town to town, filming the details of these places, fragments of my daily life, I became aware that life was becoming sweeter again. If I still thought a lot about this boy, I kept a sweet and beautiful memory of him, and above all, I had healed.

This essay, shot in the summer of 2018, echoes an essay made in the winter of that same year, What remains beautiful. It brings to close a story that ended a few months earlier.

What remains beautiful

Shot in Super 8

Release: 28th August 2020
That morning I had a bitter feeling. All day long I thought of him, wandering alone on that cold snowy day. I couldn't speak. My eyes kept filling up with tears. My heart was in my throat. I thought about him and I knew that it was over between us.

This essay is my first Super 8 film, shot in February 2018, during a workshop offered by ETNA, an independent experimental film laboratory located in Montreuil, France.
