A LIGHT WOMAN
FRANCE 28 MIN, 2023
I was told that I looked like a great-aunt. A certain Henriette. There was silence when I asked my family about her. And then one day, I learned that Henriette was found dead in 1933, 300 meters from the village.
After studying screenwriting at Paris 1, Isabelle Putod trained on feature films and then edited short films. She then devoted herself to editing creative documentaries. For the past twenty years, she has worked with directors such as Laurent Chevallier, Amalia Escriva, Catarina Mourão and Philippe Martin, and has been an instructor at La Fémis (Summer University, Archidoc and Gulf-Summer).
For several years, she has been a writer-director. Her films, formally hybrid, have a strong dramatic tension: L'Exilé du temps, selected in the Labo competition at the Clermont Ferrand festival in 2017, tells the story of the survival of a man alone at the bottom of an abyss; Une Femme Légère, a short documentary film finalized in 2022, looks at the tragic end of her great-aunt.
