Neither Heaven Nor Earth (Ni Le Ciel Ni La Terre) director Clément Cogitore will participate in a free Q&A in English on Braguino, live on Zoom and streamed to FIAF's Facebook page on Thursday, April 16 at 5pm EST (10pm in the UK).
With indelible images born from an unflinching gaze, Clément Cogitore's Braguino lets us feel enraptured in an impossible community - cradled by archaic myth and awed by a sublime nature. And slowly, as in a nightmare, we get to understand that this is the story of humankind. The César nominated short is shot in the remote taiga of Eastern Siberia by his longtime cinematographer Sylvain Verdet (Neither Heaven Nor Earth, Les Indes Galantes, Among Us, Bielutin - Dans Le Jardin Du Temps, Visités, Chroniques).
Streaming platform Le Cinéma Club is presenting Braquino through April 16.
Nest of Spies: France’s Top Secret Agents runs through April 28.
