After a video screening during a conference, someone remarked to François Rouan: “Don’t take us for fools; your models are attractive, but they aren’t models. Models don’t talk.” This staggered François Rouan, for whom sittings with models are moments of genuine and often intimate communication.
That remark, delivered by an academic, provoked the desire to create a film in which the words of models took centre stage. The first edit was completed in 2006, under the title Sans Le Savoir. Nine years later, a new edit was created, “Il n’y a pas de rapport”.
