Synopsis :


What is the boundary between the "I" of the individual and the "actor's play", and what are the limits that should not be transgressed? These are the questions this documentary raises through the testimonies of six young women who were manipulated, assaulted and sexually abused during an audition. Of course, they were aware that the movie they were auditioning for was about incest and they knew the controversial work of the director. But they never imagined that the footage from that traumatic audition would be made into a documentary. One of the victims, Alison Kuhn, neutralises the potentially predatory eye of the camera and its director with modesty and sobriety. She then transforms it into a liberating channel through a cathartic mise-en-scène, far removed from the big show.
