Director Statement

The title Fictitious Part directly refers to the employment of actors in the theatre.
Queen, maidservant, lover, widow or poisoner, prophecies or curses, Fiction with a capital F regulates our lives in society. We thus administer the ancient device of catharsis, supposedly to purify the soul... or does it merely bewitch?
Making a film within the theatre, of which the theatre is its very subject, allows us to open up the laboratory of impulses, to showcase the unspeakable: the thriller plot of Fictitious Part may find its outcome, yet the mystery between Rim and Kats prevails.
