This video was made after watching  Louis Malle‘s brilliant film Un Feu Follet. The main character having come out of rehab for alcoholism is confronted by the uselessness of life and eventually commits suicide. In a scene where he is walking with a friend, he is explaining the state of his thinking and I thought that it was very beautiful, so I made a piece around it. Translated from the French he says: “It’s not life itself I blame but what’s contemptible in it. / Alcohol was in my blood before I realized it. It was while waiting for things that I started to drink, then one day I realized I’d spent my whole life waiting, for women… money… action… so I drank myself into a stupor.”
