Director statement

“For a while, I had been working on a project about Rimbaud. […] Then the documentary had a setback, it ran aground on an unexpected event which transformed the project into something reckless: an unknown French woman offered me an unpublished photograph which, purchased and made public, would have completely changed everything which had been said and written about the child poet to date. […] On top of all this, a short while later there was another amazing discovery. Besides the photograph, I could also come into possession of the poet’s voice, recorded in Marseille shortly before he died.”
