Chloé Déchery & Chris Eley – What Do You See When You Turn Out The Light? (France, 2016)
18 minutes | Segal Lobby
French with English subtitles
What Do You See When You Turn Out The Light? is an essay film that weaves in images of the creative process of French theatre-maker Philippe Quesne and a wider reflection on the topics of light and darkness. Combining images from the rehearsal process and from the workshop where the set and costumes are being made with archival images, this short non-narrative documentary offers a creative response to the process of theatre-making and asks what it is that we look at when we sit in the dark together.
