Theme: French short films

This could be a text about France and French significance in short film making.

It could start with the Lumiere brothers and the early days of motion pictures and the Cinematograph. In these days, it could be about “La Liberté guidant le people – Liberty leading her people”, and the thrill to walk bare chested over your dead enemies with a smirky grin on your face. But it could also be about Suzy and Dany. There is always a Suzy and a Dany lurking in the shadows, disrupting, sabotaging your well thought plans. They are a nuisance. Like a mold on your chin. But they have a purpose. To let you know that there is always someone smarter than you out there. So wise up, cool down, and grab a knife (if you don’t have a French flag, that is…)

Sometimes technology doesn’t serve us the way its intended. Its all about the human mind after all. That’s the key! The mind and of course, Suzy and Dany…
