SWITCH (2018, Belgium, 18 min)
Directed by Marion Renard
During her first sexual experience, a teenage girl discovers she has a disturbing skill, a skill which will lead her to reconsider notions of sexual orientation and gender… A queer, pop and fantastic tale about emergence of sexuality and self-acceptance.
Raised in a family of musicians and cinema lovers, Marion Renard developed early a taste for genre cinema and B movies. In France, she studied a literary cursus, Cinema option, then pursued this specialization in university, before integrating INSAS in Belgium. Her projects, radios or films, fictions or documentaries, vary in tones, but still retain a carnal dimension, a kind of poetry into obscenity, a bit of black humor, and a game on the codes of the cinematographic genres.
Her greatest inspirations are John Waters, Russ Meyer, Gregg Araki, David Lynch, Tim Burton, David Cronenberg, Xavier Dolan…
