Synopsis


À portée de regard, l’Europe se profile comme une entité floue. Elle reste inatteignable pour Kelly qui l’observe avec rage. Devant la caméra Kelly rejoue son destin : sa vie sage au Pérou, sa vie clandestine en Guyane française, la famille, l’amour, la débrouille... "Kelly" est en suspens, entre trois continents, trois langues et trois mondes. Sa vie se joue à l’échelle de la planète et se resserre le temps du film dans les couloirs et les chambres d’un hôtel.

Tënk's film review


In a fragile space we meet Kelly: naive, angry, cheerful, amorous and pensive. Time stands still in her steady gaze, which loses itself far out to sea. Her life draws us in through snatches of memories, reeled off one by one. The simplicity with which this film is pieced together, alongside Kelly’s captivating words all blend to create a truly unique instance of stark and indispensable reality.
