Les États généraux du film documentaire 2012 Special Screenings Brume de Dieu

Brume de Dieu
Alexandre Barry
2012 - France - Couleur - 96'

Mattis is retarded, so people think, someone with a mental handicap who sees things others don't. He reads signs that birds leave in the mud. These traces are a form of writing, a language that normal people can't understand. Brume de Dieu is an excerpt from the novel Les Oiseaux by Tarjei Vesaas. It is a play directed by Claude Régy: "Sometimes through the mist there's another quality of light. Between shadow and light, between blindness and greater knowledge, that is where we can find the mind of the ambiguous creature that Vesaas named Mattis." Brume de Dieu is a film. We are transported by the body of Laurent Cazanave, the actor through whom passes the words of Mattis. The film Brume de Dieu is this encounter with Mattis. In the presence of the filmmakers of the two films shown in this special screening, Florence Pezon and Alexandre Barry, and also of the comedian Axel Bogousslavsky.
