Film Synopsis : In the early hours of the day, under the spell of the full moon, a woman stands at a balcony, throws away a key and falls asleep. She loses herself in the woods and is followed by a fantastic creature that won't give up.
Trivia: FAUNE DEVOILANT
UNE FEMME, a drawing made by Picasso in 1936 is part of a series called Suite
Vollard. I saw this in the lower section of the MUSEO DE ARTE CONTEMPORANEO
SOFIA IMBERT in Caracas, Venezuela. Every weekend, I visited this Museum and
stood long in front of this small piece, losing myself in the woods, imagining
this faun following this woman that he found so intriguing. I imagined the
story behind it, the story following it and it always had a background of
CLAIRE DE LUNE by Claude Debussy in my head, to accompany it. The image was
dreamy and this composition by Debussy is peaceful and it cannot be part of the
real world. It was a complete experience that has stayed in my mind for more
than 20 years. Back in January 2012, I
read in the news that the whole Suite Vollard had been sold to another museum.
It saddened me but it wasn't a surprise at all, because the undressing of
Venezuelan's cultural heritage is inevitable. The fact that I decided to make
this story now might be an unconscious way to say goodbye to this small
treasure that we had in the basement of the Sofia Imbert. And with it, I say
goodbye to my past, to something that was beautiful in my country and that will
never come back. Film Accomplishments :
