Photogramme - Hands


Within a few minutes, Charly, René, Katiga, Zinedine and Madeleine tell the story of their hands, filmed in a single shot and resting on a familiar table.
Five friends of the director are invited to reveal their hands – and nothing but their hands – to the camera. The stories which stem from this unconventional situation unveil sensual memories and hidden pain. Hands, allowed to be free, join, stir and dance.


Scenario : Christophe Loizillon / Photography : Caroline Champetier / Sound : Patrick Genet, Dominique Dalmaso / Editing : Corinne Rozenberg / Set decoration : Étienne Lefrançois
