World Premiere – Artist in attendance

From a tender age, Claude Hazanavicius has been manipulating matter: whether with chalk, plaster, or wood, everything that fell within reach was transformed. It’s in Senegal, while shooting a film on craftsmanship produced by the National Film Board of Canada, that the sound mixer witnessed the creation of a bronze sculpture for the very first time. Four to five millennia old, this lost wax technique fascinated him and became his artistic means of expression of choice: being allowed to make mistakes and the lack of specialized tools suited him perfectly. This emotional and streamlined short film answers in a very personal and straightforward manner those questions surrounding the creative process.
