TOGETHER (2019) 53 minutes
“Together has a simple title for a complicated question: how to be together? We will also ask: how to be together when everything is falling apart? The contact between the two bodies, like a spark, occurs: cheek to cheek, head to head, forehead to forehead, then nose to nose and almost mouth to mouth, the infinite tenderness of this desert couple tries to calm the panic pre–apocalyptique”.
