The Last Gesture (original title: Le Dernier Geste) (2016)
Duration 29'38 min, digital HD colour 16/9

    “A mountain as a place of exile or retreat, characters who have run out of words, three young brothers as we are told - just like in fairy tales - and a mysterious ritual to be accomplished. Nature offers such opportunities: climbing, building a shelter, lighting a fire... So many actions that appear to be piloted by the future possibility of one ultimate gesture.” Nicolas Feodoroff, 2016

    This film was in competition at the BAFTA qualifying festival Aesthetica Short Film Festival 2018, and was in the selection of FID Marseille 2016 - Marseille’s International Film Festival.
