Narcissus Poeticus

2002

super 8 diptych

10 mn

The legend of Narcissus (from Ovid's Metamorphosis): Narcissus in love with his own image ignores the nymph Echo, in love with him. The device shows the lack of communication between the two characters: Echo is projected onto the left screen, Narcissus onto the right screen. With Anne-Laure Baudouin and Jean-Christophe Besson. Music by Julien Blanchet. Distributor: Collectif Jeune Cinéma
