Lettre d'un cinéaste à sa fille (Letter from a Filmmaker to His Daughter)

Eric Pauwels

Lettre d'un cinéaste à sa fille (Eric Pauwels)
L'Alternativa Parallel / Eric Pauwels / Lettre d'un cinéaste à sa fille


When asked by his daughter why he has never made a film for her, the filmmaker replies that he stopped being a child long ago. But now the gauntlet has been thrown down. And gauntlets are like games, you can create stories by playing, and there is nothing more important for a child than playing and linking. So the father accepts the challenge and tells intertwined stories about the world and his vision of the world—surely the best gift any parent can give a child, especially when the stories take on a life of their own and who knows where they will end up... This is the first instalment in the Trilogie de la cabane.
