How did your project start out?
AV: It was going to be a short film in the countryside, with no script, in the villages where I like going so that JR, who is an urban artist, could get inspiration from a different environment. But we developed a taste for filming as we met splendid people.
JR: The more we sought to continue working together, the greater the desire to produce a feature film. But still with no script! The strength of this film lies in the way we transposed our desire to produce a film together and get to know each other by sharing the same adventure.
Can you say a few words about this adventure?
JR: I enjoyed breaking free of the anonymity of cities and travelling to these villages where community spirit is much stronger. I liked spending time with the inhabitants... as an artist, I find this type of close relationship much more enriching.
AV: There was a lot of contentment in the villages, because we arrived to present them with an artistic project in which they were going to take part. We offered them the possibility to amuse ourselves together. To play with the images, alone or in groups.
Could you tell us about the shooting?
AV: We didn't drive aimlessly, stopping for no reason. We chose a subject or a place, and once we got there, we let fate decide for us. Or not!
JR: The film was shot during our trips and depending on our respective schedules. We would meet at her house or in my workshop to think about the next steps. We had time in between each step, which gave us the opportunity to find funding to go back on the road.
