Pascale Ferran Francia

It’s been said of Pascale Ferran, who was born in Paris in 1960 and graduated from the prestigious IDHEC, that she “practices film like haute couture or the engineering of precision.” And even though such a statement becomes easily verifiable in the elegance of her Lady Chatterley or the airport landscape in Bird People, it is also true that it leaves the core region in Ferran’s work out of the map: feelings. Whether it’s mourning in Petits arrangements avec les morts, first loves and first disillusions in L’Âge des possibles, forbidden relationships or the pursuit of happiness, human passions and emotions are always at the center of this handful of films made intermittently during the last two decades –in between, there were some unfinished projects, the French dubbing direction of Eyes Wide Shut and, above all, her tireless, lucid advocacy for auteur cinema–, tracing a cartography of the heart (of the hearts) of our time.
