Denis Lavant & Hervé Guinouard in Since the sun has burned
After a fall, a tightrope walker crosses the desert to rediscover his balance, when he comes across a community of artists.
Living in a remote world, these inhabitants struggle to confront their own artistic limitations.
Hervé Guinouard & Charlotte Ciavaldini in Since the sun has burned
Since the sun has burned (Depuis que le soleil a brûlé) is an independent feature film, currently in production, written and directed by Michaël d’Auzon.
Telling the story of the artist, his inner journey and ultimately, his rebirth to the self, its creative process requires great artistic freedom & organic rythm of work implying alternative & solidarity financial resources.
This film has been in production since 2017. Taking our time has allowed us to maintain the integrity of this film, to work with an organic rythm on set that also allows for artistic freedom. Through the conviction and dedication of the Artists on our crew, as well as personal and alternative funding, we have been able to achieve filming.
We would like to invite you to join us on this journey of discovery, and humbly ask for your support in the funding of this project.
