Michael Cimino, un mirage américain

By Jean-Baptiste Thoret

Synopsis

A bio­graph­i­cal jour­ney, into the films, the life and the mem­o­ry of Michael Cimi­no, who passed away in 2016, at the age of 77, after spend­ing twen­ty years dream­ing of films that nev­er saw the light of the day. Accom­pa­nied by the voice of the direc­tor dur­ing a jour­ney of more than 2,500 miles in the Amer­i­can West, this doc­u­men­tary is also a car­tog­ra­phy of the chimeras of Amer­i­ca and its bru­tal his­to­ry, which deeply haunt­ed the man and his cinema.
