Heïs (Chronicles)

Anaïs Volpé
2015 - France - 1h30
With Akéla Sari, Anaïs Volpé, Matthieu Longatte, Alexandre Desane, Émilia Derou Bernal

Looking to succeed in life, Pia, 25, is desperate after a series of difficulties and has to go back and live with her family. Her aim is to return so she can better move away again. Her twin brother, Sam, still lives with their mother, doesn't see life in the same way as Pia and can't stand her point of view. Who is wrong, who is right? The right to leave or the right to stay? Between love and angers, emancipation and guilt, Heis is a story of blood, of emptiness and of overflowing: the story of a family.
Screenings : wednesday 25 - 4:15 pm - Les 400 coups S5 - presented and followed by a debate with Anaïs Volpé - Alexandre Desane - actor

Peter Middleton, James Spinney

With Dan Skinner et Simone Kirby, avec la voix de John Hull

Notes on Blindness is a global project, made up of documentary feature, short films and a virtual reality experience, all based on the audio diary of John Hull, Preofessor of theology and writer, who went blind in 1983 after several years of deteriorating eyesight. The 16 hours of recordings made by John Hull to help him understand and accept the upheaval in his life are a unique testament on blindness. The feature is a poetic and intimate narrative giving John Hull's development, from loss to rebirth passing through acceptance. An inner journey to the experience of blindness.
