Jaro Minne’s ‘slice of life’ short Regarde-moi sees a girl thrust into adulthood, yet paralysed when faced with the choice of making a change for herself or maintaining the status quo for the benefit of the people she loves. Jaro tells us how improvisation brings him closer to his goal of creating work that is both tactile and natural, and why you should never attempt to hide your bad cooking with good sauce.
Feeling angry and neglected by her own mother and brother, Stéphanie is trying to figure out how to move forward in her life. By working all day to pay the family bills, she is catapulted at great speed into adulthood. One day she makes a decision that will change her entire life.
