The film paints the portrait of Yves Machond who, at 55, still feels he has a piece of art to offer the world. He leaves Brussels and his job as a professor to move to Étretat, the land of Impressionism, hoping to get inspired. This comedy shows the difficult coming into being of his project and the metamorphosis of the hero. It’s an adventure with unexpected turns, where Machond will learn that life and art are not just ideas. Not only. Not yet. Artémis Production will carry the project, which has received production support.
Three other films are receiving production support, three promising feature debuts set in very different worlds. Roman Foxauthor of the mysterious graphic novel Melvilleadapts his own work together with Fursy Teyssiersupported by Need Productions. Miklos Keleti launches into the fantasy/psychological thriller with Soma, the story of a neuroscientist who tries to save their son with a mysterious substance, and a primate; a project managed by Velvet Films. Finally, Hélicotronc is working with Valéry Carnoywell-received for her short Titanfor her move to feature filmmaking with The dance of the foxesa tale of friendship set against the backdrop of a sports boarding school.
