(Film en cours de développement, production Climage Audiovisuel Lausanne)
This film is a woman’s investigation in the world of men. By patiently gathering words of several men, closely observing their world, she witnesses the social mutation occurring, breaking down certainties and shattering men’s deepest convictions.
I’m a woman in my early thirties with an urge to make sense of the confusion that seems to be tormenting most men of my generation. I can hear some of them whispering their despair and discomfort, claiming to be stuck between the #metoo movement and the boys’ club ideology. Love, sex, desire, seduction, fatherhood… so many themes that question the men around me. They are starting to wonder what it means to be a man in the 21st Century. Being born a man is still a privilege in our societies, an inherent position of power that has been widely abused by some. But being part of the exclusive circle of the dominants also comes with a price to pay. Encouraged since childhood to reach to impossible standards and locked in the cult of power and performance, men of my generation don’t feel like they belong anymore.
With a touch of astonishment and a lot of curiosity, humor and kindness I fully immerse myself in the male factory by exploring the life stories of these men. Between resistance to change and troubling awareness, they share with me their doubts, their fears and their weaknesses allowing me to gradually unravel part of the masculine puzzle.
