LA PART DU TEMPS_Les Films de l’œil sauvage_Frédérique Menant.jpg


Gymnast, trainer, then director of sports films, my father was passionate all his life about the body in movement.

for the body in motion. He produced images of it, including chronophotographs. What part of the living was he trying to capture? Now that he's about to disappear, I want to capture something of him, inscribe it in the emulsion of a film. I enter his images to approach his story: that of a man of his time, driven by the desire for mastery yet in search of letting go.
