Eric Pauwels, filmmaker and lecturer at INSAS, defended his doctoral thesis at the Sorbonne under the supervision of the French filmmaker and anthropologist Jean Rouch, founder of the cinéma vérité genre. In honour of Rouch, Pauwels directed this film in letter form touching upon the essence of cinema and life.

“One of the most important questions during the making of a film is determining the distance to the subject. Pauwels’s answer to that question consists in the elimination of that distance: he becomes a subject amongst the subjects. Cinema and life coïncide. (...) A similar thing happens in Lettre à Jean Rouch (1993) or in Lettre d’un cinéaste à sa fille (1999). The way it goes with memories, interpretations, wishes, facts and own associations melt into one another, until no objective possibility is left to report on a journey, until it becomes clear what film language means to Pauwels.”
