To no longuer Die
The death of the older brother of Medias Gayet, a young entrepreneur from Benin, has greatly affected his family. Alongside the very sensitive portrait of this bereaved African family, the director explores the different facets of the rich African spirituality of the cradle of Voodoo, Benin. Passing by the importance of the sacred in the animist religion, by the meeting of important figures of the Beninese cultures such as the Bokhonon and the Faa, to the customs of accompaniment of the dead for reincarnation, TO STOP DYING tries to find hope through a reconciliation between the living and the dead.
Holder of the AEC in Television and Cinematographic Production from Institut Grasset and a BAC in Film Studies at the Université de Montréal, Simon Plante has directed some amateur short films and a documentary.
