Filmmaker’s statement

Le Piment was written, produced and edited in five days during the Kino Kabaret in Montreal.

Written in collaboration with the actresses, the script was inspired by personal experiences but also by imagination! It deals with our need to be loved and the fear of being alone.

My goal was to reach the intimacy of a couple – their fantasies, their love, their fears – and to be able to follow them without any cuts. It’s a one shot deal!

Each take was unique, so here’s take 16!
