Last Door to the South by Sacha Feiner

Last Door to the South by Sacha Feiner

2015 – 14 minutes

Last Door to the South marks the second collaboration between director Sacha Feiner and composer Alexandre Poncet, three years after A Better World.

Adapted from a short story by Philippe Foerster published in 1982, this black-and-white film features a two-headed child locked by his parents in an endless building. The process of composing the soundtrack began before filming and continued throughout the production, in order to correspond as closely as possible to Feiner’s vision.The score has four leitmotifs: one for the “world”, one for the young protagonist, one for his castrating mother and one for his missing father,  which leaves behind many enigmas.

Awarded at the prestigious Brussels and Clermont-Ferrand festivals, Last Door to the South won the Magritte for Best Animated Short Film in 2016.

About the film:

The world is made up of floors connected by stairs. The floors are made up of rooms connected by corridors. And all the floors, that’s the world. This is the theory elaborated by Toto, the friend and second Siamese head of a child whose mother never let him out of the huge family mansion. Between exploring endless corridors, private schooling and visits to their father’s mausoleum, the brothers never questioned the limits of this world. Until one day, obsessed by a strange light they see by accident, they vow to find the end of it.

A Better World by Sacha Feiner

A Better World by Sacha Feiner

2013 – 24 minutes

Directed in 2012 by Sacha Feiner, a Belgian talent who rose to fame with the short film Gremlins Fan Films, A Better World follows the misfortunes of an intelligence agent after the fall of a totalitarian regime.

Alexandre Poncet’s music was initially intended to expose the rigidity of this dystopian universe before shattering it. A piano waltz in the middle of the projection illustrates the loneliness of the central character, and his final exile is accompanied by an orchestral suite that moves from anguish to transcendence.

Alexandre Poncet and Sacha Feiner will reunite on Last Door to the South, an animated short film that won a Magritte in 2016.

About the film:

Henry, a zealous citizen of a ruthless dictatorial state, has always given himself body and soul to his work at the Ministry of Denunciations. But suddenly, the regime collapses, seeing overnight the transformation of this cold, technocratic, paranoid world into an idyllic, caricatured expanse of green, singing, free fields.
