Monsieur Lambert’s Inventory of Personal Property

L'inventaire des biens meubles de Monsieur Lambert, un film de Lucie Lambert

What to do with the objects and personal effects left behind by our loved ones, after their death? This is the question I asked myself following my father’s passing. I searched for the answer by going through his journals, his drawings, his pictures; and by interviewing friends and reading inspirational authors. I never did find the definitive answer to my question but I did what I had to do with his things: I made a film. 

I invite you to take a playful stroll with me in my father’s footsteps; the desire to prolong his voice, by adding mine, was the principal motivation behind this short film which blends animation with live filming, and light-heartedness with existential contemplations.
