Provost shot this final part of the Plot Point Trilogy in Tokyo. He here presents the man in the street as a film protagonist whose reality lies somewhere between a dream and a nightmare. In these three aesthetic reinterpretations, Provost, using seemingly insignificant raw material, not only moulds mystical spaces that compellingly absorb the viewer, but also masterfully shows that the dream-world called ‘cinema’ is simply a constructed parallel reality comprising clichés, technical rules and dramaturgical conventions.

Nicolas Provost (1969) is a filmmaker and visual artist who has moved back to Brussels after a ten-year stay in Norway. His work is a reflection on the grammar of cinema and the relation between visual art and the cinematic experience, analysing and questioning the phenomenon of cinema, its various elements, its influence and conventional rules. His work intends to walk on the fine line between dualities and balance between the grotesque and the moving, beauty and cruelty, the emotional and the intellectual.
