Synopsis

While clearing out my father's house after his death, I found boxes of 8mm movies and slides of which I had completely forgotten about.

Before finding these boxes, I had the impression that my father died without sharing anything of his own story. This inherited, silent trove reveals to me parts of his life before my birth, his travels in the Middle East, and lost family scenes.

The process of re-appropriating these images and the creation of this film led me to discover similarities between our paths in life.

Synopsis fr

en déblayant la maison de mon père à sa mort, je trouve une collection de films 8mm et de diapositives dont j'avais oublié l'existence.

alors que je pensais que mon père ne m'avait rien transmis, cet héritage silencieux me révèle des morceaux de sa vie avant ma naissance, ses voyages au proche-orient, des instants perdus de notre famille.

me réapproprier ces images et en faire un film m'ont fait découvrir les similitudes de nos chemins de vie.
