Jean Marc Calvet has led an extraordinary, and at times, dark life, which made him a perfect subject for director Dominic Allan’s feature documentary Calvet. We caught up with Dominic to discuss trusting your inner barometer and creating films as part of the new paradigm.

Calvet (2011)

Via a terrifying trip to hell and back, Jean Marc Calvet was given a second chance at life, and now a successful artist on a quest for redemption, he embarks on an extraordinary journey to make peace with his past.

This is not reconstruction, this social photography.

Calvet begins its UK cinema run this week with Dominic in attendance for Q&As across several of the screenings. Full details after the jump.
