Director Statement

Eros was written like an introduction of a filmic collection of thought about the image of women, which I didn’t finish. This short film became an ascertainment of what can transform a sexual drive into a violent drive, in a world where rape is tolerated or excused by the way victim of dressed or by their behavior. I wanted to confront this drive to an inanimate element, an image of women that we see everyday, which is innocuous. It’s the symbolic behind the duel of a man and an advertising.
It’s during the search of a filming location that I decided to limit the script for sexual violence on University Campsus. I tried to keep it universal with an actual content.
I see Eros like a fable who warn a young man of my generation, or myself, about the danger of objectification of women made by advertising industry, fashion, clip and pornography. It warn about the consequences of this objectification on our reality, our relationship with women we meet at school, at gym, at restaurent or in a « Binge-drinking-party ».
