Director Statement

My inspiration to write, produce and direct The Decisive Moment, was to explore the inner workings of the creative process, a combination of a cartesian inspiration and a chaotic passion for the work to be done. The French photographer, Henri Cartier Bresson, seemed to have both and the results can be appreciated in his beautiful photographs. In order to represent what I believe was his creative process, I created two characters – Henri and Yvette (also the name of a famous French photographer). Their interactions lead the audience to glimpse into a reveling decisive moment.

Short FIlm: THE DECISIVE MOMENT, 21min., France, Romance

 

 
290883f79a poster

The Decisive Moment follows the life of two young photographers living in Paris, Henri and Yvette. They meet in an art school and become fascinated with each other in very different styles.

Is the creative process a commitment to analytical reason or to passionated inspiration?

The film is a homage to the photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, who was able to combine analytical mind and intuition in his photographs in the spare of a moment, a Decisive Moment.
