Mosco Boucault, a documentary experience

Conversation Mosco Boucault – Arnaud Desplechin

140 min


Certainly, when Arnaud Desplechin replies in an interview with Télérama that “for me, what seems to 
distinguish fiction and documentary is identification”, he touches on a crucial aspect of the documentary experience and its specificity, as staged by Mosco Boucault. That of an irreducible otherness which gives the spectators no room for self-projection and to which they can only be witnesses.
