A Tempest
Jane David, Olivier Derousseau, Joachim Gatti, Jean-Baptiste Leroux, Tristan Varlot, Les Envolées
2015 - France - Couleur - 45'

We see people who, together, are looking for something. What they are looking for, they aren’t quite sure. But they know that it is important. And not only for themselves, but also for others, somewhere else in other places. This thing, they are tempted to name it. But for the moment, the important thing is to first make it exist, between themselves. For that purpose, they decided to make a film based on a play, The Tempest by Shakespeare. They could have done something else, but they decided to do this. So what they are showing is them playing Shakespeare and talking about what performing Shakespeare in Aulnay-sous-Bois means to them. And meanwhile, something starts appearing. Invisible to itself, but obvious in the tone of voices, the tension of bodies, and in their way of being together.
