Synopsis

En mélangeant approche documentaire et film de fiction, Rä di Martino revisite "The Swimmer", l'oeuvre éponyme de Frank Perry pour questionner la modernité trompeuse d'une ville orientale prisée par les occidentaux venant y construire un paradis artificiel.

A small crew is going around Marrakech and its surroundings looking for swimming pools to find locations for the remake of an American movie in which a man crosses a county, pool by pool, to reach his home. The Controfigura (The Stand-In) rehearses the shots to find the path through the city and the pools that the main actor will run and swim through. While we watch his struggles to become more than just a stand-in figure, the real actors and shooting crew burst into the scene on a set where nobody seems to be in the right place. A film in search of itself, looking for where the real film is.
