Buster Keaton, the mechanic of the cinema

Hélène Deschamps, Anastassia Elias
Buster Keaton is not yet four years old when he already officially takes part in his parents’ music-hall act. Later on, this unbelievable actor will produce silent films in black and white, which will be just as much explosive poems, celebrating fantasy, magic, and the fabulous.
  • Hélène Deschamps After getting her DEA (Masters of research) in cinema, Hélène Deschamps wrote a book on L’Amour fou by Jacques Rivette. Today she is a projectionist and conveyor in cinema: with her caravan, she goes from class to class talking about cinema to children and leading workshops to make them see the images from the other side… Hélène adores the films of Pierre-Luc Granjon!

  • Anastassia Elias published her first title with the publisher Motus and the second with the publisher du Rocher. Her work has revealed her to be talented illustrator.
