    Drama

    While he loses his clandestine work, and because he believes that Maroussia will no longer not be able to love him as well, Frank leaves to win as much as she: twelve thousand, just what it takes to have a year before them. No more no less. In the course of his proletarian odyssey, he becomes the hero he dreamed of being. But there is a price to pay.

    Press

    A fatalistic, politically charged romance that is underpinned by a sense of the financial pressures and human casualties of a globalised economy.

    The joy of directing this story [TWELVE THOUSAND] to its end, keeping the necessary distance and at the same time, feeling it from the inside, was a rollercoaster! But I think it’s the least you can do, right, when you’re making a movie?

    Nadège Trebal obtained her degree from the Fémis Film School in 2006, where she specialised in screenwriting. She is fascinated by the documentary element involved in the writing of fictional films. In this vein, she has collaborated on the screenwriting of several feature-length films: Claire Simon’s ÇA BRÛLE (2006) and LES BUREAUX DE DIEU (2008), and Simon Collardey’s COMME UN LION (2012). SCRAP YARD (2013) is her second feature-length film, following on from BLEU PETROLE (2012). Her latest film TWELVE THOUSAND (2019) was selected in the International Official Competition at the Locarno Festival.
