The night before

Short film, 16′, fiction, 2019

Director : Pablo García Canga

Synopsis : 

The Night.
She doesn’t sleep.
She calls.
She tells.
She saw a movie.

This film tells the story of two nights.
One night which is not seen in images, existing only in the words of The Clock, by Minnelli, an old Hollywood film.
One night which is seen in images but about which we hardly know anything, those of a woman who talks about the Clock.
So, in fact there are two films, two stories that come together at the same time, getting closer, and moving away, merging with what they have in common: desire, night and the city.

Waiting for the girls

Documentary, 28′, 2019

Director : Rémy Jantin

Synopsis : On the edge of Bordeaux, in an area that is being redeveloped, a fast food van appears every day on a parking lot in the middle of the building site. It serves regular customers of labourers and prostitutes who hang around killing time without seeming preoccupied by the transformation of their surroundings.

Babette, Dédé and Jacky, shipwrecked characters who are simultaneously melodramatic and sincere, congregate here every day as the construction progresses. By following their three meandering destinies, the film observes the ephemeral community that they have become in this in-between place, moments of respite that they manage to snatch from their own realities.

Shooting: Bordeaux
