Jean Cocteau Je reste avec vous
Between past and future, this film presents a biography of Jean Cocteau and those who were his friends: Proust, Stravinsky, Chanel, Picasso… But above all, the documentary highlights the traces of his artistic heritage and the immense influence he has left on the artistic creations of our contemporaries. Fifty years after his death, we decipher this extraordinary character, in turn a poet, playwright, visual artist, filmmaker, an artist that unmade fashions by creating a timeless universe, a world of universal legends that is now part of the collective unconscious. The interview backgrounds are all a nod to Cocteau’s universe. They lead spectators into a formal play of emotions and impressions: games of Chinese shadows, drop shadows, projections of photos and film clips, very sharp lights, games of mirrors, a door that magically opens onto the outside world. Behind the mirror, we will find the myths of Cocteau: Orphée, l’Ange Heurtebise, La Belle et la Bête, etc. This documentary leads the student not only to discover a rich imaginary world, but also a talented man who has been able to change the world through his passions. The artist becomes a role model for young people who are getting to know themselves, that they may dare to move forward in the future with strength and determination.
