Director Statement

Ce film est très spécial, presque thérapeutique. Ayant eu un AVC en 2016, il a fallu tout réapprendre. S’adapter. À tout. Ça a été difficile, et ça l'est toujours, d'ailleurs. Alors pour explorer cette sensation, cette impression, ce ressenti, j’ai essayé de montrer Alpha V. Charly comme un voyage mental, la plupart des extraits étant issus de mes archives personnelles et familiales.

Tels des fragments disparates de souvenirs parfois oubliés, les images et les sons sont de plus en plus confus, voire disjoints, à la lisière de la mort. Mon film, fugace, au montage peut-être brutal, se joue des contrastes, vignettage et noir et blanc/rouge sang, à comparer à la seconde partie, plus sereine, tout blanc puis en couleur.

Au milieu, le noir.

Comme un reboot, malgré tout optimiste.
