My Life as a Zucchini / Ma Vie de Courgette ⁄ colour ⁄ 66' ⁄ SUBS: EN

Claude Barras, Zwitserland - Suisse / Frankrijk - France, 2016


"A wonderfully affecting French-Swiss stop-motion masterpiece based on Gilles Paris’s book Autobiographie d’une courgette. Directed by feature first-timer Claude Barras from a screenplay by Girlhood writer-director Céline Sciamma, this tale of resilient children surviving abuse and abandonment may sound tough and unpalatable. Yet despite the spectre of parental alcoholism, drug addiction and worse, this beautifully tender and empathetic film addresses kids and adults alike in clear and compassionate tones that span – and perhaps heal – generations." The Guardian

How do you not only represent an event, but make it tactile and pungent? Steve McQueen accomplishes this with an unrelenting approach, through a frank confrontation with the subject matter, and by realizing an uncompromising proximity with it. McQueen’s films focus on subjective experience, and anchors his audience into that experience. That way, “history” hardly feels so distant.
