Ilan Dubi – Avant l’océan (direction)

A short film shot in Lausanne by night. “A 15-year-old boy decides to flee his city to join Olivia on her way to the ocean. Only, a transportation issue forces them to wait in the city by night.”

With a shoulder-mounted camera and a small crew, we set out into the streets of Lausanne to film the wanderings of two teenagers tinged with the melancholy of departure.

In this film, with its saturated images and surreal sounds, I sought to explore the notion of introspection and the feeling of disillusionment that haunts our teenage years.

The film opens with a shot of the ocean at sunset, followed by a transparent portrait of the main character.
