Vrai du Faux (Le)

CGiii Comment

Director Armel Hostiou travels to Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, because someone from there hacked into his Facebook account and posed as him by announcing fake auditions. The film documents this journey: a director in search of his false identity, hidden - and identified - through a Facebook avatar. Or is it not so? Le vrai du faux perhaps shows the web of relationships embedded in a system of power that decrees what is black and white. Or is it fake? Le vrai du faux moves in a boundary space between real and virtual, usurper and usurped, me and the other. False, but it's all true.

In an endless matryoshka of perspectives, Hostiou explores the meanings of truth and lies, an enterprise that becomes the fuse for playing with -apparently- oppositional identity positions and desecrating the very concept of identity.
