An Exquisite Corpse is Alive in Europe and Haiti
Exquisite Corpse is a film project that is participatory that compares the every day life in Europe and Haiti. Fabien Guillermont will work with a group of teenagers living in Besançon, France and with professional film makers in Sweden. The French group will be formed by 8 people, from 12 to 18 years old. On the one hand, the young participants will discover through the project various technical aspects related to the making of a film. They will learn to use technical equipment, to develop a documentary and fictional approach and to edit. On the other hand, they will meet two confirmed film directors, Adler Pierre and Fabien Guillermont. Through the exchange with Adler, living and working in Haiti, they will discover the current social and political context of the country. The project proposes a joint reflection on this situation, and the creation of a work from this exchange. The professional film makers in Sweden will meet an experimental and intercultural that traverses different age groups. The work will challenge their notions about (documentary) film-making.
The project has been initiated in November 2021.
