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...
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.
