Video Premiere – Bye Cookie by Samuel Morris and Fabio Tozzo

The French poem “Pour faire le portrait d’un oiseau” was written by Jaques Prévert in 1945. The short video essay by Swiss director Samuel Morris transports the classic poem into the modern subculture: A young female adult sends a Whatsapp Voice message as a goodbye letter to her lost love by quoting the poem and applying it to her own circumstances. 
“This is for you.”
