Jeunes Hommes à la fenêtre

France 2017

Synopsis

Two graphic designers at work, by mistake, start playing with an empty scanner's possibilities. They venture into assumptions, eventually open up to each other, and let go of the strange images, until they let go of themselves.

Directors Statement

I wanted to do a portrait of two young "workers" of the digital abyss, and of their (a)political melancholia. It's also a direct hommage to J. Eustache (the greatest director of sitting speech, after M. Pagnol).

Biography

Born in 1985 in Athens, Loukianos Moshonas attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Lyon, and Le Fresnoy in Lille. His shorts have been screened and awarded in numerous festivals – New Directors New Films in NY, Angers, Documenta Madrid, Janela, Olhar de Cinema, Vila do Conde, Mar de Plata – while his last two shorts MANODOPERA and YOUNG MEN AT THEIR WINDOW both premiered at the Locarno IFF in 2016 and 2017, the latter winning the EFA nomination for European Short Film. Based on MANODOPERA, he's preparing his first feature NO GOD NO MASTER, a twisted class-related melodrama of endless demolition and renovation work, between reality and fantasy, in an Athens basement flat.
