Born of the photos he took of Bernard from the day they met, Jean-Claude Larrieu’s initial project was to film Bernard Faucon over the years, for as long as possible. He ended up giving up on this timeframe, but kept the posthumous dimension, imaging his film as an evocation, a reconstruction, of what he called “the creative gesture” after the artist’s death. To him this meant filming the matrix of everyday life, representative scenes from the Luberon and the Goutte d’Or, more than the artist at work.
