When I Will Be a Dictator / Quand je serai dictateur
Belgium, 2013, Colour, 90 min
Is there only one universe? Do we only have one life? And when we die, is it forever? Is there something beyond the infinite? Is there any link between our short lives and this Universe? This project tries to provide answers to these old human questions, elaborating a kind of personal and burlesque cosmology, based on the latest astrophysics discoveries. The originality of this movie will be to write these universal questions on intimate and family footage, in an enthusiastic way, by melting together amateur films and my own super 8 footage.
