Festival Européen du Film Fantastique de Strasbourg 2019 – Strasbourg (France)
Just Don't Think I'll Scream
by Franck Beauvais (France / 2018 / 76 min.)
The flow of images is endless, snippets of hundreds of feature films follow each other in rapid succession. For the entire duration of this found-footage essay, they illustrate the filmmaker’s voiceover narration, which is akin to a diary covering the period between April and October 2016 and is equally delivered at speed. After separating from his partner, with whom he moved to a remote part of Alsace years before, the filmmaker lives there in isolation, without a car, without a job, without a future.
