Written, directed and produced by Kaeto Sweeney
Martine is a transvestite who walks around Paris barefoot often wearing a mini skirt or dress. She sometimes films herself getting in and out of the city’s waters then shares her images on social media.
The film is built upon fragments of our encounter and the relationship we built over 2 years. Throughout the film, I am searching for ‘our thing in common’ and how to film it.
"On the streets of Paris walks a barefoot water dancer known as Martine. Filmmaker Kaeto Sweeney explores an unattainable, obscure obsession with an undefinable spirit from The City of Light. Martine is a complex quest to understand love and human sexuality using a sophisticated lens." - portland unknown film festival, 2018
