    Director's Statement

    You and the Night was set up in order to bring together actors working remotely to create on screen a community of people who get together despite the stagnation of today's world and the harshness of contemporary society. The people resist this; they go back to notions that are dear to me, those of friendship and family. Even though in this case we are revisiting the idea of a family unit: crazy, as transgressive as possible. These people have a second degree attitude towards themselves; I don't. Although it's important for their development to be aware of the ridicule they might project, I think I constantly have a very sincere view of them.
