Dir Mathieu César

In a vast airport hangar-like space books and books and more books – in rows, piles, boxes, everywhere the eye can see. A man lives his life within that space with no sense of confinement, serene, absorbed, wanting for nothing else. Shot in black & white.

Lockdown short film specially commissioned by MK2 from acclaimed photographer Mathieu César as part of their Trois Couleurs Home Film Festival – a daily selection of iconic films, interviews, articles and much more.   

Dir Mathieu César | 2020 | France | 8 mins | French with English subtitles.
