The Kiosk

Le Kiosk
Alexandra Pianelli
2020 • France • 79’

The Kiosk is a filmed newspaper of a young plastic artist who came to lend a hand to her mother, a newspaper saleswoman in a chic district of Paris. Her family members have been following each other behind the cash register for nearly a century and observing the world as it goes. From the discovery of the profession to the complicity that is forged with the clientele, the director plays the merchant, as in an old childhood dream. But the press is in crisis and, with the passing of the seasons, her little game turns out to be less fun than expected.
