Nana is 4 years old and lives in a stone house beyond the forest. Back from school, a late afternoon, all she finds is silence in the house. A journey into the night of her childhood.
Best First Feature Film (Locarno IFF 2011), Best International Feature Film (Festival Internacional de Ciné de Valdivia, 2011)
It's through photography, and notably her collaboration with Nan Goldin,that Valerie Massadian came to image-making,creating slide-show screenings (The Link, Mary Go Round, Journal de Bord), exhibited in Tokyo, London and Porto. What she has retained from photography is its freedom and the rigor of frontal contact. She has taken this same approach, committing to a project from concept to completion, in her collaborations with several film directors. From there came the need of her own film, Nana.
