Maybe they're just pretending

What’s the urban, emotional, and relational space available for female slackers, if there’s any? I’ve been asking myself this question for a long time now, and this short film I wrote and directed during my residency at Kino Guarimba allowed me to ask that question out loud, explore what it means to slack, and let it come to life.

Lara (Inger Sund), a German woman in her late 20s, wants to spend time outdoors with nothing to do, except drifting and slacking aren’t in her nature. Finding herself in a small town in Southern Italy, she doesn't know what to do with herself or how to engage with her surroundings, foreign for reasons beyond a language barrier.

After finding some human connection in an unlikely and obsolete place, she ultimately regain her sense of self and a feeling of wonder: for nature, her body, and life itself.

Au dîner

Some Super 8 footage I shot during a dinner carefully prepared by Martin Planchaud and Penelope Volinia for the Domaine de Boisbuchet's food suppliers, gathered at the table for one of the last dinners of last year’s edition.

The ritual of hospitality, the repetition of the same, small acts, created a grounding experience that brought comfort while also leaving space for daily, little reinventions. And lots of fun.
