The UK debut screening of ‘Le Plein Pays’, a film by Antoine Boutet focussing on the life of Jean-Marie Massou. “A man has been living for thirty years as a recluse in a forest in France. Alone, he hews out deep underground tunnels and galleries, which he decorates with old-fashioned engravings. They must withstand the planetary disaster that has been announced, and they must explain things, through their perceptive messages, to future inhabitants. The film recounts this experience as lived on the sidelines of modern society, affected as it is by human wretchedness and the loss, once and for all, of a perfect world”.
The film screening will be followed by a discussion on Massou’s life and artistic practice with Le Belle Brute – the team of archivists and recording artists who have been working closely with Massou at his home. The discussion will be hosted by Mark Harwood (Penultimate Press Records).
