Blaise Harrison’s films have a soul. Behind this filmmaker’s beautiful work lies a reality that he breaks down and rebuilds by following a path, an inner rhythm: what we call a vision, an idea of the world. We also perceive — something fundamental to filmmaking — love for the people filmed, for their sorrow and joy, for their hopes and disappointments. In 2010, Armand was the protagonist of the filmmaker’s film, Armand, 15 ans, l’été. Today, the young man is 20 years old; he visits New York and confides his desire for emancipation to the camera. He is intoxicated by the sentiment of freedom and the discovery of the possibilities the American city offer him. But the melancholy of past times is already on his mind. Blaise Harrison says: “He lets us glimpse the man he is perhaps becoming.” Armand, New York is the third part of a trilogy (the second, Armand 19 ans, was part of Visions du Réel’s Traces du futur collection in 2014), which could make his character into a new, documentary-version, Antoine Doinel.
