New film in progress - First teaser: December 2023.
The invisible and hectic life of a Dadaist billionaire. More invisible than the Yeti, more mysterious than the Loch Ness monster, stranger than the Bermuda triangle: Howard Hughes.
The invisible and hectic life of a Dadaist billionaire.
This five-part investigation follows a man who, even in death (like Elvis?), is still several steps ahead of us and the mediocre billionaires of our time. A barely believable comedy.
A surrealistic comedy - An unreal true story.
This film will not show any images of Howard Hughes (respecting his invisibility during the last 24 years of his life). Reconstructions, interpretations and a rich selection of analog archives will show us the result of his choices and actions, more or less secret, real or unreal.
