Coeurs de silex (Hearts of Flint)

2012
HD video 40 min

An ally, an occupant, a witch, a poetress, a trainer and a violent child… My new movie is inspired by the traumatic history of a little subur- bian french city : Noisy-le-Sec, bombed by the allies in 1944. During 4 days, six actors are improvising in the present, in the city, some roles drawned by the sad destiny of wars.

They build up together a funny and scathing epic in a non-time, post apocaliptic, pre-apocaliptic, a time of crisis where only earth is al- lowed to be eaten.
