Am I Paris
A film about acceptance and reflection.
This surprising and enchanting video features the French dancer Skorpion in a costume made by the hair expert Charlie Le Mindu. As a “hair creature”, Skorpion roams the streets of Paris while amusing, intriguing and sometimes even scaring passersby. Director, Redha Medjellekh’s aims to highlight the need to accept differences in a cosmopolitan city like the French capital, putting dance at the center of this process as a means of communication. The combination of elements, including Le Mindu’s astounding costume, Medjellekh’s staging, the ensemble of street characters and the intensity of the classical music score by Prokofiev gives the film an intense and poetic power that marks the minds.
