Cleo and Paul

    Cleo and Paul

    France / Color / 60' / 2018

    Three-and-a-half-year-old Cléo is brilliant at hide-and-seek: her brother Paul and their nanny have no chance of finding her. At some point Cléo herself no longer knows which route she took through the park. Suddenly there are strangers everywhere. Νone of them really notice her. So Cléo decides to stick with the woman who looks just as lost as she is, and together they explore their worlds anew. Paul, too, gains new perspectives when he finds himself alone among the other children: he discovers what Paris is like when one is out and about without adults.

    Stéphane Demoustier

    He was born in Lille (France) in 1977. After several short films, he directed his first feature, 40-Love (Terre Battue), which was selected at the Venice Film Festival in 2014. As a director and producer, he founded in 2008 the company Année Zéro, which produced Cléo & Paul. Since early 2018 he has started the shooting of La fille au bracelet, his next feature film.
