Passe Encore de Bâtir

— l’abécédaire de Marie-Claire

Since February 2020, I have been working independently on my first feature documentary film, entitled Passe Encore de Bâtir — translatable as “building is one thing”.
This film is as much a portrait of my grandmother — an undermined 93 years-old lady fond of archive and old artefacts —, as a reflection on the place and importance of archiving practices. As I reveal the structures of filmmaking, the movie turns into a mise en abyme of archives’ and memory’s processes.
