Screening ― Frédéric Moffet: The Desire of Others

  • Dazibao 5455 Avenue de Gaspé Montréal, QC, H2T 3B3 Canada (map)

“For over 25 years, I have been creating short-form films and videos. When Vidéographe approached me to present a “carte blanche” screening at Dazibao, I decided to simply present a series of short works one after the other. These videos have never been presented together before. This opportunity allowed me to reflect on the commonalities and differences between the pieces I have created over the years.

I have always been fascinated by the lives of others. I feverishly read biographies, personal essays and works of autofiction. In becoming a voyeur in the intimacy of other people, the onlooker can rela­­te, empathize and start to understand oneself. One can also fantasize. As a philosopher once said: “The true story is the history of desire”.”
