(2010) dir Jean-Charles Hue w/Frederic Dorkel, Joseph ‘Jo’ Dorkel, Michael Dauber [84 min]

There is turmoil in a small Yeniche (gypsy) community in rural northern France. Fred, the unofficial leader of the nomadic clan and the best car thief around, is going through a spiritual crisis. The giant of a man was given a white dog by a nocturnal visitor. Was it a divine apparition? Will Fred ever find his way? A real cinematic curiosity, Jean-Charles Hue’s film defies categorization, miraculously balancing on a treacherous tightrope between fiction and documentary, anthropology and spiritual metaphor.
