Director BIO: Valentin Petit (THE NOISE OF THE LIGHT)

Bc43f6865a headshot

Valentin Petit is a young French director based in Paris. He wrote several video clips for street music artists and directed a lot of commercials for famous brands such as Puma, Unicef, Adidas or Canal +. His passion for travel naturally led him to fiction, through which he was able to express a more neo-melancholic creation. He is currently developing many personal projects, among which short films that won multiple awards in French and international film festivals, like his latest experimental film: « A Portrait of Rafel Delalande ».

 

Director Statement

 

Following my previous works (Anthophobia and A Portrait of Rafel Delalande), I wanted Le Bruit de la Lumière as a crossroad between a visual experience and a film fantastic. Through this combination, I wanted to tell a story about the synaesthesia phenomenon. I discovered this feeling which some people experience in the autobiographic novel from Daniel Tammet, Born On A Blue Day.

In order to create Lou, the main character, with Guillaume (co-writer), we went a little bit further by giving her a supernatural ability to generate sound when she is touch by the light. This choice show our fascination and our inability to understand something which is so intimate and personal.

The Fantastic treatment of the story is also a way to exacerbate the connections between our main characters. Marius and Pablo are facing an opportunity which is difficult to avoid, despite their friendship with Lou. How would we react in front of such a phenomenon? Moreover, how are we actually reacting to a person who describes her synaesthesia?
