Deuxième nuit (la)
Second night

Eric Pauwels, Belgium, 2016, 16 mm, Format diffusion : 1.67 (Super 16), 75 minutes

On the death of his mother, a filmmaker makes a film to see how much her disappearance has changed his vision of the world. It is an opportunity for him to look back over his relationship with her: a relationship that made him a free individual, as a man and as a filmmaker. The Second Night is the final part of a trilogy that began with Letter from a filmmaker to his daughter, which was followed by Dreaming films. The making of this “ Cabin Trilogy” is the fruit of fifteen years of work and reflection.
