A film about seeking validation in a society impossible to please and the mental exhaustion caused by it.
In this story Emy, a young woman, wants to be the sort of girl that fits in to a mould. She wants to be desired, loved, envied but soon feels like she isn’t good enough.
She then attempts to modify every part of herself to try to please others but never seems to get it right.
It obsesses her to the point of taking note of every single thing people tell her, to try and change.
She craves attention. That feeling of being accepted by others.
She chases after it until she realizes she will never get it.
It’s an endless pursuit because someone will always have something to say.
In reality who cares about what people think ? She was enough no matter what anyone said. She just needed to believe she was and own herself. Confidence is power, and nobody can take that away from you.
my name is Emma. I am a young film director/editor/writer. I study at Gobelins in Paris. Since a very young age I have been fascinated by the ability of telling a story through film making. I was probably 10 when I discovered the show « Bewitched ». I remember being fascinated by the special effects. I wanted to be able to create any world I wanted to. Maybe It was a way for me to escape my reality but I decided to pick up a camera and start learning. Me and my best friend would try and make movies during our free time, where dinosaurs would chase us down a pathway or where we would enter a land with unicorns. When I look back now, i realize It looked terrible but we had so much fun doing it. We were able to create anything we wanted such as a different world, a different reality. It was new and exciting. It became my passion. I wanted to learn more, surpass myself, be able to make something that looked realistic. So I practiced and failed a lot but I kept going. Growing up i discovered a different side to what I was doing. I could express myself, not just by creating another world with talking animals but I could express my emotions, my feelings, my vision of life.
Today making movies has become a sort of therapy for me. It helps me process life.
For me making movies is like creating a new world dictated by my emotions.
