Le jour où le fils de Raïner s’est noyé
De Aurélien Vernhes-Lermusiaux film 2011
Aurélien Vernhes-Lermusiaux likes all the arts but film a bit more. He bases his work regularly on notions of visible and invisible, on presence and absence. The notion of trace is also one of the axes of his artistic approach which questions the relationship between individual and collective memory.
Night is falling fast... The inhabitants of the village have found the body of the Raïner son drowned in a river. In front of the family home, through the window, the villagers observe Raïner and the rest of his family peacefully sitting in the lounge. Who will be able to announce the terrible news?
A collective trauma has gone in silence. What a story! What story?
