Un Chanteur Invisible is the short documentary that I edited as part of my graduation from the Netherlands Film Academy.
About 130 days a year, the unpredictable and cold mistral races through the Provence. This notorious wind leaves its traces in the landscape and the lives of the inhabitants of this area. He disrupts, challenges, torments, inspires. People put up with it, they play it, and they try to give it shape. Through the eyes of the inhabitants of the Provence this film paints a portrait of the mistral. But is it still the wind, or a reflection of the people themselves? In search of the meaning of this majestic wind, the tangible gradually merges with the intangible.
