The window

Since 2009, through workshops and filmmaking workshops that I lead, I propose, among others, the following work: shooting through a window, and tell a souvenir in clip. Many movies, beautiful, strong, and have been made​​. From time to time, as part of the workshops, the participants asked me to myself, to “exercise.” I can not avoid it. So here are my windows !

In 2020, during the lockdown, I opened the platform “By my window”, which allowed a large number of people to express themselves, to share their sensitivity, producing more than 300 very precious films.
