Laure Giappiconi, an actress and author, La Fille Renne, a photographer, and Elisa Monteil, a sound and performance artist, form a filmmaking collective. Shooting on LomoKino or Super 8, they produce short films with an explicit focus on the body and sexuality. Their films shine with the nostalgic but timeless charm of celluloid.
We are currently promoting our two first short films: Alive and Mermaid.
Alive uses striptease to evoke themes of youth and death. Mermaid is a sophisticatedly explicit exploration of a girl’s first experience with masturbation.
Both films use the same key elements: an intimate, first-person narration and a small plastic camera that shoots three images per second on 35mm film. The camera produces stuttering, sensuously grainy black and white images.
They are also planning a third film titled Love.
Alive will premiere at the fifth Festival du Film de Fesses in Paris. https://www.lefff.fr/programme
