Single price 6 euros
Accepted cards UGC and Gaumont + 2 euros

The debate :
Open Windows is a movie presenting a priori a subject of niche. How can this subject can be, during the movie, transcent to become universal?
How does the intimate portraits of four homosexual septuagenarians drags far beyond the kind, beyond the age, the sexual orientation, the culture and beyond stereotypes?
It’s what will approach our debate on this movie of a resolutely optimistic point of view, which enlightens its subject in small touches and opens a window, allowing each to wonder and to envisage the ageing, as much his as that of the others.


OPEN WINDOWS is in the selection of ROZE FILMDAGEN festival ! It will be screened in Amsterdam on Friday, 11 and Saturday, March 19th.

OPEN WINDOWS arose from a discussion with my friend Michel Klein about her mother and my father. It was just after summer, 2011, when we had both spent a few days at our respective parents. We had wondered what conditioned the way of aging of each.
I had decided to look for an answer to this question and had begun to work on the theme of the ageing in the community LGBT to make a documentary movie.
Michel helped me a lot in the writing of the movie. He corrected, suggested, opened ways …
Michel died on Friday, March 13th, 2015.
I dedicate him the movie.michel
