An experimental short by Montréal-based filmmaker Matt Grimard. “Fleurs: Between Us Two” opens a window into a relationship gone wrong as a young man calls for a tragic separation through the offer of an unexpected gift.

Narrated in the present yet visualized through the past, the film’s unique photo-novelesque style was created using a looping technique Grimard first delved into 2 years ago. The process required editing without the use of a computer as all the loops involve micro sequences of 6 to 8 paper printed frames, as he explained to us: “The idea was to stick both characters in micro-moments to enlighten memories we live on.”
