PREMIERING AT CANNES: RUBBER
Quentin Dupieux, the director: I’m still naïve enough to believe that there is still room for unconscious and format-free films claims Dupieux. The too formatted films, structured as emotional machines, annoy me. I like the idea of doing a film on a living tire, with no narrative structure nor dramatic stakes. It’s possible! Also, The budget was very limited : I conceived the script, taking into account our means, and I like working like that a lot. Thus, RUBBER is the story of a serial killer tire that refers to his youth: Around the age of 12, my father’s video camera made me feel like filming. Then I discovered horror movies in video clubs and I instinctively needed to remake some fragments at home. And why a tire? I can’t answer questions starting by why. The introductive monologue of my film includes exactly 8 why. Life is full of mysteries… Why don’t we see the air around us? Why a tire? This is the same question.
