In one short night, a young spin doctor has to write a speech before the campaign rally of a mysterious candidate.
After a heated election campaign in France, “Tout devient possible” (Time to believe) is a short film by Remi Besse about a young spin doctor has to write a speech before the campaign rally of a mysterious candidate. Alone on stage, trying to write few lyrical sentences based on promises, eloquence and hopefulness slogans, he’s confronted to the writer’s block. No electioneering phrases : the young man is blocking, incapable of writing a single word. Anxious, doubting, weighed down with guilt, in need of strength, hope and certainty, he’s going into a trance. Alone in the darkness of an immense empty room, face to thousands of chairs, richly colored vignettes blur the line between delusion and realism. The young man is projected into a drug-induced trip through politic, dream, disillusionment and expectance.
The film marvellously uses mixed medias to enhance its rhythm and trippy disillusions, that show us an unforeseen side of politics. The final experience is an incredible and empowering journey that will really make you feel hope, and that anything is possible.
Remi Besse is a young painter and filmmaker based in Paris. He decided to start writing about the different steps of writing a speech, precisely how to subjugating a crowd. He wanted to bring another eye on political arena paced by an oneiric narration. The film was revealed online between the two rounds of 2017 French presidential campaign.
