He is a seclusive man, a very, very seclusive man. So seclusive that, but for his own image in the mirror, he completely lost the idea of what another human being might look like... Anyway, tonight it's different. He decided to do something special. He will open the door and go outside.

Director Biography - Frédéric Roussel

Born in Brussels, Belgium, where I live, I practice and teach Drawing. My main concern is telling, be it by ways of words alone, words and drawings, words and photos, no matter if I cross the boundaries between art fields... Feeling concerned by the intricacies image is rich of, I like to explore the ties linking pictures to words and sounds. I am also fond of nature, and my stories mirror it to some extent. I love challenges, such as making films on a shoestring, in the back of a garage...

Director Statement

This story first appeared as a text where I tried to merge poetry with photo-tale. I took the stills to turn it into this, indeed loosing, in the meantime, the written poetry, but regaining, through the reuse of insert titles, the strange mood of the silent movies. The core of the story is still there: that man, retired from the world, is scorched alive as soon as he tries to go out again, and he doesn't burn alone. Scelsi's wonderful music contributes, with its ghastly wrapping mood, to worsen the nightmare.

About The Event

Ted Geoghegan 2017, USA, 91 mins

The War of 1812 has revived violent hostilities between the British and their erstwhile American colonial subjects. The powerful Mohawk nation of the New York region is divided as to whom they should stand by, and so they maintain a position of neutrality. They want no part in the killing – but the killing is coming to them. An impulsive attack on an American encampment has drawn the vengeful attentions of a ragged band of American military renegades, led by the vicious, racist Hezekiah Holt. Oak, Calvin, and their British lover Joshua flee into the woods so familiar to them, but the murderous musketeers on their trail will not be deterred. Not without the spilling of blood.
