La traversée du désert

Strings vibrate in the first light of day. From this vibration comes movement, dance of air, dust and bodies. It is between the rocky arms of a black cleft that we witness the birth of a being of flesh and clay. A curious red monolith will invite him to rub shoulders with the solar star.

Director Biography - Maxime Patinier

Compulsive creator, jack-of-all-trades artist, Maxime has exercised his eye and his sensitivity in fields as different as theater, visual arts, music, writing and, of course, cinema.
This need to create often meets his fascination for the traces of the past, so numerous in the mining basin of northern France where he was born, and this alloy is often fruitful, as evidenced by the many video montages, photos, drawings, texts and other musical experiments that populate the hard drives of his friends.
Accompanied by Aurore Froissart, he created the Mines de Rien collective in 2019, with the aim of highlighting the artistic imaginations of the mining area through the production of audiovisual works and educational workshops around cinema. Association which quickly becomes essential at the local level.
Créateur compulsif, artiste touche-à-tout, Maxime a exercé son œil et sa sensibilité dans des domaines aussi différents que le théâtre, les arts plastiques, la musique, l’écriture et, bien sûr, le cinéma.
Ce besoin de créer rencontre souvent sa fascination pour les traces du passé, si nombreuses dans le bassin minier du Nord de la France où il est né, et cet alliage est souvent fructueux, comme en attestent les moults montages vidéos, les photos, les dessins, les textes et autres expérimentations musicales qui peuplent les disques durs de ses amis.
Accompagné d’Aurore Froissart, il créé en 2019 le collectif Mines de Rien, dans le but de mettre en avant les imaginaires artistiques du bassin minier à travers la réalisation d'œuvres audiovisuelles et d’ateliers pédagogiques autour du cinéma. Association qui devient rapidement incontournable à l'échelle locale.
