September 8 at 8:30 p.m. in Saint-Maximin and September 1er October at 4 p.m. in Vinon-sur-Verdon, the short film Memento Mori will be broadcast for free, followed by a short film and a debate with the team.
A pirate story
Filmed in the Vallon des Carmes, it will immerse you in a fantastic adventure where pirates from the 1810s in search of legendary treasure will sink, led by their captain, into a lost island without worrying about the various ghost stories that surround the legend.
The script co-written by Stéphane Ciantar and Sylvine Garand, ten years ago during a workshop, was brought out and reworked when Stéphane visited the valley of the Carmes de Barjols with his companion, ideal for filming.
Taking the reins of production and editing, he was accompanied by a team of more or less seasoned but very talented actors, including the co-screenwriter.
The cameraman, Thomas Duphil, created the film’s special effects and color grading. The actor Armand Giordano also imagined the choreographies of the sword fights.
Six days of filming
All volunteers, they were helped thanks to a crowdfunding campaign to which around fifty people contributed.
This short film of about thirty minutes, suitable for all audiences although with a double reading level, was shot in six days, spread over a month and then finalized in a year.
