Short Film Profile


The unexpected meeting of a lonely woman, a young boy and a shaman, whose paths will cross and slip away in a labyrinthic world of unresolved mystery.

Film notes

After magnifying suffering in EXOTICORE and PAPILLON D’AMOUR and revealing wonder in OH DEAR, Nicolas Provost dives into a world of anxiety and strangeness, questioning our fears for the invader and plunging us into the heart of a new emotional experience. Provost, just like his alter ego the shaman, plays tricks, working once again on the cinematographic matter and the sensorial shock it engenders, but also on its illusionary nature like white magic, manipulating time and narrative logic, finally leaving us alone with his latest creation’s unfathomable mystery.
