A short film premiere! This film is inspired by a text from Destiny Nolen. Directed by Clément Oberto, Unacceptable Behavior is a light poem about youth and loneliness. It is narrated by Georgia Feroce and guided by a subtle and sensitive score, composed by John Tejada. Clément Oberto created a film which follows a woman on the edge, someone who feels too much, a fragile and strong soul, always on the verge between bursting into tears or into generous and beautiful smiles.
“Our heroine wanders through the sublime landscapes of the American West. More than a portrait, this is a generation testimony, solar and vibrant. The story of young adults ultra-connected and yet still alone, victims of their hypersensitivity, trying to find harmony in this delicate balance between remains of childhood and promises of adulthood.”
Clément uses his own desire for emancipation – he had just left Paris himself when this film was shot – and mixes it with the irrepressible quest of his actress; confronting the intimate world, full of questions to the lack of dialogue with the outside world. He opposes the immensity of the landscapes to the smallness of soft words in a tender and poetic journey full of graceful melancholy.
