Sur les toits de deux mondes

Throughout this history we will discover the psychology of two characters, their desire to live apart and their bodies undergoing metamorphoses.


The story takes place in two mountainous landscapes that contradict each other and fade into one another: the volcanic landscapes of Mexico, and the valleys of the Tarentaise near Mont Blanc.


The film is based on two characters who come from a fantastic literary tradition. It is a parallel, dislocated and anachronistic narrative.  





The two protagonists of history: The nun lieutenant Alferez and Fanuel are two hermits who lived in autarky in these two territories, the film is about  their last ascent in the mountain before dying.




I am interested in these two mystical fables, written originally in Old French and Old Spanish, because of their anachronism,i would like to give birth to a narrative between fiction and reality.


Fanuel and Alferez appear in this film as deities who observe changes through ages and landscapes, (which are also indefinite), exploring the possibilities of crossing these vanished voices, these forgotten words.





The two characters have a close connection with the mountain landscapes, in my film the mountains are characters in their own way, they are of immense beauty and at the same time a symbol of constant oppression, the landscape is a mirror of The state of mind of the two mystics.  





In both accounts, the bodies of the characters are mutating, in the case of Fanuel it is a blessing that generates and which allows his body to give birth to a child who is Saint Anne, the great mother of Jesus. His leg is like an incarnate word, within which all incarnated stories are contained.


For Alferez it is a matter of self generating its own identities, its feminine identity produces its future masculine self, it traverses the old and new kingdoms in the manner of an Orlando, it abolishes the notion of frontier in the Earth space because she abolishes the notion of gender inside her.




The Orizaba Peak (Mexico) - March 2017, The team and me will climb up to its 5700 meters and around the crater, as well as in two villages down the mountain




The valley of Tarentaise (France) - April 2017, We will film in several refuges and churches located in the villages of Tarentaise.
