The story is interspersed with peaceful, dream-like rural scenes, accompanied by deeply moving symphonies.
A sensual...urban tapestry with threads of image, sound, poetry, and song.
Film is a dream space for me. It seems like the best place to face yourself.
Born in Paris in 1972. Since his beginnings as a director, Alain Gomis has often turned his attentions to the topics of identity and narrative deconstruction. After making his first videos and short films he directed his first drama L’AFRANCE which focussed on the psychological distress experienced by foreigners living in France. AUJOURD’HUI is Gomis’ third feature film. His film FELICITY screened at the Berlinale where it won the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize.
