World premiere: Visions du Réel 2022 / National Competition
After three years and 476 matches with men on dating apps, director and anthropologist Céline Pernet wants to investigate her relationship with the men of her generation. Through a newspaper ad she finds thirty men between 30 and 45 years old who are willing to talk about their relationship(s) with masculinity on camera. In a quest that is as intimate as it is societal, the director talks to them about seduction, sex, couples, love and paternity as toxic models of masculinity are put into words while inspiring interpretations are considered together for the future.
