THE FILMS

Keep Me Upright (Tiens moi droite) (Zoé Chantre | France | 64 min.)
Zoé Chantre offers an intimate and wry self-portrait that celebrates the healing qualities of art and the power of defining one’s own story. Diagnosed as a child with scoliosis and a large angioma of the left brain, conditions that prevented her from carrying anything heavy and caused ophthalmic migraines, Chantre found solace in creative expression—first in drawing, and eventually in filmmaking. The product of five years of collecting, recording, and editing images, this autobiographical film incorporates collage and animation to showcase a wholly unique voice and fresh visual style. Addressing her delicate, poignant, and very personal subject matter with humor and spirit, Chantre has produced a beautifully realized and original debut that marks her as an extraordinary emerging talent.
