The Rivers

Go to the Sea

(activate English subtitles)

… and here we are, my baby is born! it will have taken 5 years and a half.

FIVE YEARS AND A HALF for f* sake! (maybe you can’t see it but it is written in arial 82 bold)

this is totally bonkers! it seams it takes more time give birth to a baby than to yourself.

“It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.” disait Joseph Campbell

As you may imagine, I have cried a lot while making this movie. it has been one of the most beautiful thing, Yes, the most profound, hurtful, love-full and fun thing i have ever experienced. We talked about it quite early in the process (well ok already after a whole year) that the movie had its own rhythm. nothing of what I “wanted” would work. “it” would not let me do it. it obliged me to listen, sometimes to wait for the flow to come back, sometimes on the contrary to renounce in order not to sink.

I was reading yesterday Women who run with wolves : “el Rio abajo el Rio, the underneath river rivière represents the creativity of the feminine psyche”… OUI! and what an adventure!

i feel moved, moved, moved and full of gratitude.

i would like to thank my family, my mother and grand mother, my children and their father. and of course Jerry without whom the movie could not find its way. the universe has spoken i guess!

i also had the great chance to work with beautiful people, the first of which Marine Arrighi de Casanova my co-producer, who has been reading the blog since the begining and who came to me 6 years ago to tell me “i think you should work on a long feature now”. there are also Thomas Monnet and Nicolas Boucher who have worked like crazy (literally) on the edit. and indeed Kenny Dickenson who has composed and performed a whole original soundtrack from Los Angeles (wtf!!!).

so here we are : the baby is born, but I now will need more of your help and ongoing efforts to present it to the world I already have visions and dreams, such as a vod link, an album for the soundtrack, a tour of projections with debates, a kit for you to make your own projection with debates (i know, it will be less abstract when you the film), I enventually dream of special projections with a performance… just to say it and already the work is starting! so, all your help and advise, and contacts are more than welcome! let us do it together!

i indeed have kept the best for the end…

dear kiss kiss bankers, MERCI!

thank you from the bottom of my heart. this movie could not exist without your financial support and benevolence! your trust and patience have guided me throughout the whole process!!!!!
