The weight of emptiness
Directed by Alain Fournier
||Original French version, English subtitles
Thomas suffers from strange weightlessness crises. Distressed, his mother takes every means to to bring him down to earth.
Alain Fournier is particularly interested with the fantasy genre, in which the atmospheres are always a strong feature. His first short film Of Mother and Tides (À Mères et Marées) won several awards (Fantasia, Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival, Festival Off-court Trouville-sur-Mer). Then he directed two short films with puppets : ÖKO (nominated for the 2010 Jutra Award (Quebec, Canada) for Best Animation) and InnerCity (La Cité entre les Murs), recently released. The weight of emptiness (Le Poids du vide) is a supernatural drama, his fetish genre. Alain Fournier is currently developping his feature film project.
