January 2016. The love story that brought me to this village in Alsace where I live ended six months ago. At 45, I am now alone, without a car, a job or any real prospects, surrounded by luxuriant nature, the proximity of which is not enough to calm the deep distress into which I am plunged. France, still in shock from the November terror attacks, is in a state of emergency.
I feel helpless, I suffocate with contained rage. I am lost and I watch four to five films a day.
I decide to record this stagnation, not by picking up a camera but by editing shots from the stream of films I watch.
Born in 1970, Frank Beauvais programmed the competitive selection from Belfort EntreVues Film Festival between 1999 and 2002. “Just don’t think I’ll scream” is his first feature film after writing and directing 8 short films: “On my knees”, “Sun and death travel together”, “Vosges”, “Compilation, 12 moments of unshared love”, “I’ll be floating without any desire”, “A diamond guitar”, “Un 45 tours de Cheveu (ceci n’est pas un disque)” and “There’s an elephant staring at me”. He also works as a music consultant.
