Shenzhen at night, copyist painters recount their daily lives and their craft. Their acts shift alternately between an artistic and blue-collar imagery, from new technology to classical techniques. Here, another history of painting is being drawn.


Girls in Flower

A vivid memory of women which were once girls. A film about time and femininity, questioning how the erotic body gradually becomes a body that insists, how time is registered within the promise of youth which becomes marital duty. Drawing upon Marcel Proust’s approach on memory, in his novel “In search of lost time” and entering the director’s own visual and sensory memories of her grandmothers, the film seeks to explore femininity in late adulthood. The title is a direct reference to Proust’s novel second volume "In the shadow of young girls in flower".

Under Paris' glittering Eiffel Tower, undocumented Senegalese migrants sell miniature souvenirs of the monument, to support their families back home. Far from their loved ones and hounded by the police, each day is a struggle through darkness in the City of Lights.

August 2015, Gabriela Bosso was diagnosed with cancer. Doctors gave her less than a year to live. Determined to tell the story from the very inside, for years Gabriela filmed every battle, defeat and victory she went throw. This documentary is an audiovisual diary, not only about the oncological treatments, it is also but also fears, metal state, emotions, love and art. Can passion for Art help someone to survive a little bit longer ?
