SUNSHINE FOR THE SCOUNDRELS (Du soleil pour les gueux)
2001 | 35mm | 55′ | OmEU

In this gently absurd, picaresque idyll, a young hairdresser from the city makes a pilgrimage to the open plateaus of southern France in search of the mysterious, blood-sucking ‘ounayes’. There she meets a grizzled older shepherd, and the pair go wandering in search of his missing flock. Encounters with a bandit and a bounty hunter punctuate their serenely pleasurable quest – an indolent afternoon of loping philosophical conversations, sex and sunshine.

In collaboration with event partners Bureau du cinéma – Institut français Deutschland, Air France KLM, and Sofitel.

This event will take place in Wolf Studio located at Wildenbruchstraße 6.

FIREFLIES is a film magazine created between Berlin and Melbourne. Each issue, a curated assembly of writers and artists celebrates the work of two contemporary filmmakers through new forms of criticism – personal and experimental essays, poetry, fiction and visual art, plus longform interviews with the directors – in a beautiful print artefact.
