Two women are inadvertently united by a shared name. One discovers by chance that the other is using, without consent, her image on the internet to create other content. The regrets of a lifetime are replaced by the youthful vigor of another young body. This disturbing animation reinforces the question: what autonomy remains when we surrender our image to the internet? How morbid can the unimaginable interactions between other humans and machines become once we’re on the internet? (G.R.)
Stephan Vuillemin, born in 1986 in Besançon, is an animation director, comics author, and illustrator. His 2011 web-comic "Lycéennes" was branded "a novel use of animated gifs" by Cartoon brew and told the story of a girl getting sick after a dog licked her ear. Between 2016 and 2022, Vuillemin dedicated his time to creating his first animation short film, "A Kind Of Testament", first by himself and then with the support of production company Remembers.
