The Real Life

La vie réelle: sans défense

Directed by Arnaud Gerber
France, 2013
Documentary, Avant-Garde


A philosophical film work based on the French philosopher Simone Weil’s thoughts, beautifully translated into grainy 16mm footage from early modernism’s absolute center, Paris, and divided into chapters like stations on a night-time ride with the metro.
