In presence of Faustine Cros
Always with a camera in hand, the director’s father immortalised family life and the coming of age of his children for many years. Amidst footage of the daughter’s birth, the son’s first steps and family day trips, the now adult filmmaker repeatedly finds scenes of her mother Valérie. Working through the extensive family archive, she discovers yet another story in the material, namely that of a young mother who visibly disappears in the course of time.
UNE VIE COMME UNE AUTRE urges us through the intimacy of images and the personal story of a mother to scrutinise the position of women in society and family.
