En compagnie de François Lagarde

PARALLELE SCREEN - HISTOIRES DE PORTRAIT
World Premiere

While he is preparing Le Rouge et le Gris, François Lagarde talks about his discovery of Jünger’s text, the deep connexion between this text and photography, his approach of the film, his search for documents. In a few precise and attentive strokes, Philippe Pigeard draws a portrait as a tribute to his departed friend. (NF)
