Director Statement

‘Ever since I was little, I dreamt of various ends of the world, but it never made me sad. I found it inspiring and relaxing. This is the feeling I wanted to put across in Aurore.
It's an atmospheric film. I wanted to make the end of the world seem beautiful, aesthetic. I like paradoxes. The contrast between the gentle imagery and the tragedy of the situation has a strangely calming effect.
I wanted to use this film to explore change, rupture. The passage from one time, one era, one state of being to another.
More than the end of the world, this film is about the end of a world; the personal conception each of us has of a World. It is about metamorphosis.
Aurore might be our young heroine's first name, or perhaps the title signals the start of a new day, of a new World.
I wanted the film to be open to interpretation. I thought a lot about the last shot, choosing to end on an opening, a question mark.’
