Jean-Luc by Hugo Glavier
Animated Documentary / 15’ / 2D Animation, volume
Jean-Luc le Ténia had nicknamed himself «the best French singer in the world». With the song, he told his own life, without restraint, until he turned it into a legend the day he ended it. But behind the legend lived a man, Jean-Luc Lecourt. The Tenia was for Lecourt a mask with his own effigy. Today, the story of Jean-Luc le Ténia continues to live through his songs, gradually erasing the memory of Jean-Luc Lecourt.
