Since her first movie, Pauline has sought create and reinforce a personnal universe and prefers emotions and character development to classical dramaturgy.
Forlorn Hope show the sad observation of powerless witness facing the world desaster. A complain, a despereate scream about the deadly future of people submit under violence, insalubrity, exclusion. The goal was showing two men fightings themselves between battle and brotherhood. It appears primordial to me to work on emotions through a screenplayed clip. Through a dramaturgy that let symboles and feelings places.
The shadows on my skin
The shadows in my heart
What have you done ?
I also wanted to work around a symbolism that would build a bridge between their planet and ours. My inspiration takes it’s roots from the song title in the historical way. « Lost Childs» or « Doppelsönder» were fighter or prisoners send to death in battles in first lines, in exchange a higher salary or their freedom.nspired by artists like Bill Viola or Andreï Tarkovski, I decide to use the tar like the central element to this work.
Black gold faithfully reflects some of the ills of our society, such as oil spills, human torture or economical perversion. In this clip, tar represents protagonist deadly destiny, express by ineluctable death of a new born coated in the fatality liquid or the deadly future of a man vainly preparing an already lost battle.
The clip will found it climax when the band became viewer of this destruction and ask a disturbing question : Aren’t we condemning our proper child, giving them “Forlorn Hope” statut ?
