I kept a Super-8 'diary' for a year, from October 2006 to October 2007. Started as a logbook, it was to be used to record my impressions as the weeks went by and my reflections on the present. Questions keep coming back, run through the whole film: mourning, uprooting associated with my grandmother (Maltese born in Tunisia, where I spent the first years of my life), the split between Nevers (the town I live in) and Sète (the town to which my grandmother moved and where I was born).

Cécile Ravel

Born in 1964 in Sète in a family of French who had returned from North Africa and Maltese. She has drawn and made films since 1990 after training in cinema and animation at San Francisco Art Institute. She obtained a doctorate in plastic arts on the archaeology of audiovisual and the poetics of projection in 1993. Super 8 is her favourite medium and she uses its scope for colour and special texture in often intimate experimental films, in the style of filmed journals. She often incorporates drawings that she animates and that enter a dialogue with real camera shots.
