Vanishing tigers

Fiction expérimentale - 2015 Numérique HD et Super 8 / 12'55'' / format 2:35 / N&B et couleurs

Olympia, a History of Art student, is concerned: Athena one of his roommates is missing.
A ghost wanders and tigers are running in their cage in an abandoned, deserted, world.


Shot between Germany and Iceland, then edited in France, this film is for me like a laboratory. I could experience a freer form of cinematic expression, which lies between fiction, experimental and art film.

In my film research, I seek out to create a visual and narrative material that mixes a wide range of influences, combining references to popular culture with existential or metaphysical interrogations. I strive to explore the collective unconscious, that reflects the irreconcilable conflict between being and non-being striking each individual, as primary artistic material.

Vanishing tigers enfeoff of classical drama, narrative codes and traditional storytelling to question the viewer: what is the amoung of freedom and conditioning in our lives? The plot disolves from the core of the film to apprehend a world devoid of substance: a human society where nature would take back its rights silently.
