Uuquchiing

a film by Kévin Noguès

SYNOPSIS

Camille has faded away from his own life. Days are followed by other days in a metronomic tempo, between his work in a factory and the regular visits at his grandparents’.
One evening, while he’s having diner at their place, he is thrown a few hours later in his own future, without recalling anything. Hours he actually lived, according to his entourage.

BIOGRAPHY

Kévin Noguès is a film director and was born in 1981 in Caen, Normandy. After studying in a preparatory HEC class, he is admitted to the University of French Language and Literature. He graduated with a master’s degree in 2005 (after having written a thesis on Greek myths in Pier Paolo Pasolini’s filmography). He then gets himself into a professional Master’s 2 degree at the University Denis Diderot in Paris, studying Documentary Films. After his studies, he makes his first documentary, La Duende au corps, improved by his meeting with the actor Denis Lavant. In 2011, his first short film, Dans l’arbre, is produced by the G.R.E.C. In 2014, for his second short-film, Kévin worked once again with Denis Lavant, who co-authored the script and played the main role. Uuquchiing, produced by Origine Films, is his third short film.
