Presentation of the program of the 14th edition of the Festival, the many guests and the members of the Jury.

The ceremony will be followed by the screening of the emblematic film Dernières Nouvelles du Cosmos, which extends our perception of reality and difference, by Julie Bertuccelli.



by Julie Bertuccelli

Despite being nearly 30, Hélène still looks like a teenager. She writes powerful texts with a caustic humour and is, as she says herself, part of a “miscalibrated batch that doesn’t fit in anywhere.” A visionary author, her poetry speaks to us of her world and ours. She works with a director who is adapting her work for the theatre and has discussions with a mathematician. Yet Hélène cannot speak or hold a pen and has never learned to read or write. She was 20 years old when her mother discovered that she could communicate by arranging laminated letters on a sheet of paper. This is one of the many mysteries of a woman who calls herself Babouillec.

  • At 19:00 at the Cinéma Palace
  • At 20:30, a second screening, at BOZAR

In the presence of the director, Julie Bertuccelli, president of the international jury.
