    It’s a refreshingly pessimistic take on a genre that’s dominated Hollywood, and the global box office, for nearly two decades and counting.

    An intriguingly downbeat spin on the invisible man scenario.

    With a diploma in Fine Arts (Ecole Nationale Supérieure, 1986) in hand, Patrick Mario Bernard explored several artistic sectors, notably illustrator, graphic designer as well as staging and directing in the theatre up until 1995. In the mid-90s, he delved into an original cinematographic universe with his partner Pierre Trividic. Following a documentary on the master of science fiction, HP Lovecraft, the couple exposed their intimate life in a mid-length film, THIS IS A PIPE (2001), an odd look at the sexual act. Mario Bernard and Trividic also took on the leading roles in their first collaborative feature called DANCING (2003) (co-directed by Xavier Brillat), a haunting home movie shot in DV, appraised by the critics in 2003. In their second film, shot in a cold night atmosphere, THE OTHER ONE (2008), inspired by the writings of Annie Ernaux, they paint the portrait of an overly-jealous woman (Dominique Blanc, Best Actress at Venice 2008), and of anxiety in our society. Together with Pierre Trididic, he directed the feature film BLIND SPOT, which premiered at ACID 2019.

    After studying law and history, Pierre Trividic attended IDHEC (1980-1986), where he met Pascale Ferran. The two co-wrote several shorts, and then COMING TO TERMS WITH THE DEAD (1994), a brilliant first feature for Pascale Ferran in 1994. He then co-authored the screenplay for THOSE WHO LOVE ME CAN TAKE THE TRAIN with Chereau in 1998 and LADY CHATTERLEY, again with Ferran (Cesar for Best Screenplay in 2007). Pierre Trividic decided to try his hand at filmmaking in the 80s, but was more adept at video. He worked several years at SFP alongside Jean-Christophe Averty and made a few experimental shorts such as "LA DIFFERENCE ENTRE L'AMOUR" (1991). By the mid-90s, Pierre Trividic had established his own original cinematographic world with his partner Patrick-Mario Bernard. Following a documentary on the master of science fiction, HP Lovecraft, the couple exposed their intimate life in a mid-length film, THIS IS A PIPE, an odd look at the sexual act. Mario Bernard and Trividic also took on the leading roles in their first collaborative feature called DANCING (co-directed by Xavier Brillat), a haunting home movie shot in DV, appraised by the critics in 2003.
