John Blouin

Action stations in a cinema’s projection room: a film roll has got mixed up in the middle of a screening. The projectionist has no time to lose and must repair everything before changing the reel. He calmly explains the necessary movements to his apprentice, complete with anecdotes… This passionate and mischievous tribute to a dying skill shows a genuine ‘performance’ in a single long take.
