Les États généraux du film documentaire 2009 Home projections

Home projections


9.30 pm. In the village below, the screening halls are packed with faithful États généraux spectators and the municipal sports field slowly fills for the evening outdoors projection. Nothing like that here. We are twelve, perhaps fifteen spectators in a garden or a living room of a village inhabitant. Everything is ready for a pleasant evening: a film, its director, a group of friends or neighbours. For the moment, the guests are still reserved, but after the film tongues are untied and the magic works once more. Each person will be able to speak up, encouraged by the natural simplicity of the present moment, perhaps also by a glass of wine offered by the host. A little later parting will be difficult, but does it matter? We have become old friends who will surely meet again some day...
