En Cendres
Film -

This film was inspired by the story of a real person whose identity must remain unknown for security reasons. Consequently, every truth stated here is disguised as a purported lie.
This particular situation impelled me to push as far as possible the limits of fiction, which in certain situations can become theatrical while preserving the emotion and the infinite humanity of the person whose identity and history must not disappear.
I have created a world in which past and present, reality, dream, memories and fears all coexist, along with the present “self” and the ghosts of the past, so as to travel with them in the melancholy of a battle that is lost, not only on the political level, but also on the human level. A world in which the character too will become lost in the middle of this revolution.
