Arnaud is looking for his place in society. Soy Libre shows his insatiable desire for freedom on a nearly ten year long quest, which brings him from Northern France to Spain to Peru. A portrait of a little brother growing bigger and bigger, through the eyes of his elder sister. 

“The images in Soy libre are snapshots of an elusive existence. In this interplay of appearing and disappearing, a dance between brother and sister emerges, a constant moving in and out of the frame, as if Arnaud were playing cinematic hide-and-seek with his sister.”

Gerard-Jan Claes, Tillo Huygelen

Soy libre transcends the merely biographical. Arnaud’s concrete life acquires a shimmering abstraction by becoming part of a history. In this sense, Soy libre is a classic story, a contemporary life chronicle reminiscent of the work of John Ford, whose films show that human resistance is largely determined by the social environment. A guide in a turbulent world, Arnaud seeks an answer to the question of what makes life worth living. This becomes very explicit when Arnaud briefly returns to France to visit his frail grandmother. Her fragile, lonely face becomes a mirror for Arnaud’s own quest. To what extent can Arnaud find the freedom to build his own existence? Can he start again?”

Gerard-Jan Claes, Tillo Huygelen
