COMPETITION SCREENING 7: Family Connections
Ride - dir. Laure Protat, France 2019, 44’
RIDE is a portrait of my younger brother of 16 years, Maxence, through his practice of freestyle scootering. In the skatepark of Antibes, in the French Riviera, from one winter to the next — and during the unexpected ordeal of an interminable summer — I observed the adolescent faces and bodies of Maxence and his friends, the enigma of their metamorphosis, and tried to capture what “riding” expresses of their intimate desires.
