FRANCE — UNITED KINGDOM 108 MIN, 2019
Ron and Karen welcome in their home a community of people hearing «voices» that comment on their daily thoughts and actions. They discuss the impact of these voices on their lives and social identities, but they also confront their voices and negotiate with them to become more cohabitants than intruders. This introduces an in-depth and very original discussion about difference, stigma, independency and show how individual singularities can form a political body. It is an account of an intimate hubbub, one which is inaudible to us, but which echoes all our hidden sufferings.
Born in 1965 and a graduate of the Paris Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Olivier has spent his life as an independent and innovative practitioner of artistic and cinematic research.

He lives in Paris and has been teaching film at the Lyon School of Fine Art since 2006.
