l'Ascension du Haut Mal
l'Ascension du Haut Mal
writer director, France, colour, for Les Films du Poisson and Acqua Alta.

Pierre-François is six years old when he sees his big brother suddenly struck with a strange illness: the Grand Mal. In 1965, that was how people talked about epilepsy. Against it, traditional medicine is powerless. So his parents follow all sorts of bizarre therapies, spiritism, macrobiotics…

But in Pierre-François’ eyes, this leads nowhere: he knows all too well that to defeat the Grand Mal he will have to assemble the armies of Genghis Khan, conjure his ancestors’ ghosts, and even make a pact with demons.
