JEONJU DIGITAL PROJECT 2011

France / South Korea / Spain, 2011 (MIFF 2011, Documentaries)

Director: Jean-Marie Straub, Claire Denis, José Luis Guerín

Each year, the Jeonju International Film Festival commissions three filmmakers to create low budget digital shorts to premiere for its annual highlight - the Jeonju Digital Project.

With An Heir, Jean-Marie Straub interprets texts by Alsatian writer Maurice Barrès to investigate his conflicted relationship with the region, the place of his birth.
