De Fernando Colin Roque, film 2019, 19min

The methodical polarisation between life and death raises the question of the metaphysical meaning of life. The drama involves a Mexican transvestite who goes to northern France to soothe the pain of his/her mother’s death and also to discover whether the carnival, like death, makes us all equals.
This film was shot during two carnivals, one in Chiapa de Corzo in Mexico and the other in Dunkerque, in France. In making this film, my aim was to describe the desperate will to survive. Over the top and sometimes pathetic, the character of Dana is not without humour, like the carnival at which the dead are alive and dance.

My way of directing is more novelistic than documentary. I adopt the personal viewpoint of the character, following the action with a wide-angle lens and a shoulder-mounted camera. When that is effective, the viewer is caught up in the event and is placed at the centre of every sequence and thus the film, surrounded by people who are talking. Ideally, the viewer will receive enough information to be able to understand what is happening, with no barrier between him and the subject of the film.

Remerciements Thanks
