THE BLIND WRITER
The drawings of this film were made blindfolded, that is, without looking at them while drawing but using only tactile cues. This constraint deconstructs the individual drawings, which are then assembled into a whole in the viewer’s mind. The film gropes along like a blind man, reflecting the perplexity of a writer who questions dogmas and certainties.

A PIECE OF CAKE
All disordered behaviours start with a glance.
Time pauses, like being struck by lightning; as the electricity courses through your body, every cell in every nerve becomes full of boundless energy. I forget who I am or where I am. An uncontrollable mind, madly pursuing its mission, like a chip in the brain: To become a star in your eyes.
