LE FEU AU LAC
Festival Official Selection - Champs-Elysées Film Festival (Paris)
Delicate and violent at the same time, a small cinematic jewel from the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. A high mountain hamlet, early summer. Felix comes down from the pastures where he’s guarding his cows and finds his old mother lying unconscious on her bed. Shaken, he runs off. He drives a few miles in the valley to the house of a young man who just contacted him on a dating app.
Pierre Menahem, anthropologist and film programmer, co-founds Still Moving in 2015, handling co-production and sales of feature films from all over the world. ”Fire at the Lake” is his first film as a director.
