Why we love it

Carried away in a space of time where the timing is never right to find the loved one, Memories of the Moon uses the fantastic as a tool to share with us a moving story of missed love.

About the director

Antoine Dricot was born in Namur, Belgium. He graduated as a draughtsman after a degree in visual arts, before studying film direction and photography (IAD and ESA LeSeptanteCinq). 
Memories of the Moon is his first short film.

Intention Note

Thought as a desire for cinema inspired by directors such as Alfonso Cuarón, Andrei Tarkovski, Michel Gondry and Krzysztof Kieślowski. The themes close to Antoine's heart that he seeks to embody in Memories of the Moon are the relationship with distance, the inescapable transformations in the world and in human relationships, and above all the fear of the passing of time, which he explores through the powers of immersion and identification specific to cinema.
