Le Filmeur

(France, 2005, 102 minutes)

A selection of the “video diaries” of ten years in the life of French film director Alain Cavalier, during which he battles skin cancer and loses both his parents. The concepts of “autobiography” and “slice of life” reach new heights in this endearingly freeform, somewhat experimental documentary that is at times too personal for general consumption but is never less than fascinating.

A Pyramide International/Pyramide Distribution release. Michel Seydoux presents a Camera One/Pyramide Productions production. Directed, photographed and edited by Alain Cavalier, with the collaboration of Françoise Widhoff.
