TABLEAUX DANS UN GRENIER
Nadia, the daughter of an abstract painter who died twenty years ago, lives in a working-class district of Liège. She shows us around her loft, where dozens of canvasses are piled up in the dark; we can make out some paintings and wonderful, flamboyant colours. Why are they hanging about in an attic ? Might they disappear ? A few experts, however, judge them to be important works.
The painter Roger La Croix (1933-1984) lived and died in bleak, lonely poverty on the margins of society. The film begins an investigation into the life, death and work of this Liège-born artist of exceptional talent and destiny.
