The Misfortunes of Francois Jane Trailer

The Misfortunes of Francois Jane Trailer by Patrick Pearse

Purple TV presents the trailer for Patrick Pearse‘s new film The Misfortunes of Francois Jane, premiering at Palais de Tokyo in Paris on September 28th. The film uncovers the inward journey of Francois Jane who is marred by his obsession with Charlotte. In waves of the illuminating and the self-destructive, the two navigate separate delusional worlds whilst tearing at each other. Speaking exclusively with Purple, Pearse explains, “In the film, it’s a time in which we see Francois Jane effected by various degrees of naivety that lead him to a disillusioned state of reality. However, with life experiences and age, our naivety as humans is either created by the subconscious’ smoke and mirrors in order to protect ourselves or it’s just simply a conscious facade. Los Angeles, or social social media for the matter, is often a good example of the latter. Hence why there is no technology in the film, an aspect of present day society that was purposely removed. That might have been a little bit indulgent and fantastical on my part.” Read the full interview on Purple Diary here.
