Synopsis

As Tunisia experiences revolutionary unrest, Diane tries to come to terms with manic-depressive symptoms so intense that she nearly loses her memory. Five years later, she comes across the diverse records – photographs, diaries and home videos – that she kept during thi time of crisis. She then transforms these documentary materials into a tool by which she captures the seemingly lost fragments of memory. Nevertheless, her goal is not to weave these fragments into a holistic narrative, but to preserve their fluidity in order to present the chaotic events that made the chasm between the public and the private unimaginable.

"This is the story of a broken memory locked on a harddrive. I wanted to look at the pieces of the puzzle - footage, sounds. To face the black holes. Remember. Show the violence of this inner storm." D. S. Bouzgarrou

Biography

Diane Sara Bouzgarrou (1985) is a French director and artist who experiments with the boundaries between documentary film and the avant-garde, and between film and other media (video art, photography, fine art, literature). In her work, a focus on introspection and bringing to life personal memories is mixed with reflections on important historical events.
