How would you describe what you do?
Young cineast, activist and collagist.

Finding ways to not respect the lockdown without paying too many fees.
Anything planned for the future?
I have trouble imagining the future, I don’t really know where I’m going but I’m going there purposefully.
Nickname(s) people have given you?
Gollum from The Lord of the Rings, because when I was eight I had big ears.

Any new habits?
Taking trains to random destinations.
What’s your daily routine like?
Waking up; resisting falling asleep again; fall asleep again; wake up 30 minutes later; pee; put music on; dance and stretch; cup of coffee; write down dreams of the night and fears for the days; put some random clothes… (fast because I’m late )... text that I am late; tell myself I have to wake up earlier the next day.

Having sex with my dad.
What artists are you listening to?
These wonderful new artists: Margaux Kintsungi, Le Bail, Plus petit que trois, Bilou, Baka G, Élodie Gervaise.
Last nightclub party before lockdown. When I feel a bit stressed sometimes I imagine myself dancing in the middle of the crowd and I feel better.

My two little sisters.
