Film -

In a village, Camille, 10 years old, is looking for something to do. He finds St4r, a funny animal who follows him everywhere. Beatrix, his adult friend, decides that they will form a family. Then the phone rings, Béatrix is ​​selected to participate in her favorite reality show, finally. But there is no more gasoline in 2026. St4r has an idea: they are going to build a flying machine to rob the refinery that we see in the distance. It will be fun.

The ST4R short film takes place in the heart of a French provincial classic village in appearance, it turns out to be much more complex and full of absurdities. The village is a place that inspires me, it reminds me of my childhood when everything seemed possible and at the same time so impossible.

This fantastic landscape welcomes characters, each more wacky than the next: Christelle, the winner of the giant vegetable competition, the blind old man or the neighbor who is passionate about juggling. It is in this canvas that Camille, the main character, a child who behaves like an adult, evolves. He has a friend who behaves like a child. And it is her that Camille and St4r must take care of even though the world around them is worrying.

Born in 1995 in Oursbelille, a village in the Hautes-Pyrénées, Julia Tarissan lives and works in Paris. She is a graduate of the École nationale supérieure d'arts de Paris-Cergy and is studying at Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains. Julia is developing a self-taught practice of film-making in which she mixes mediums, bringing her work to life through a dense aesthetic. The adventures of naïve characters are a medium for addressing the themes of everyday life with a sense of absurdity and fatality. In her screenwriting she focuses on the development of fantastic stories inspired by current social realities where complex and marginal characters come to life in a deliberately disturbing atmosphere.

In 2022, she directed the short film ST4R, presented at the DOC (Paris) and at the Sacho festival ; in 2018, the short film Papa Nos Dijo, produced by Landia in Buenos Aires, was selected for the "Si Cinéma" festival in Caen. Tarissan also makes music videos and has won four CNC pre-production grants for "Video-music" projects (Timothée Joly, Lachinos, Cate Hortl, Miel de Montagne). In 2019 she made a video clip for the musical group Feu ! Chatterton, together with Sophie Calle, as well as a cartoon for older children for Sandra Loves Guns, which won an award at the MINT Festival.
