Portraits of Provence

 

d'ici a laD’ICI A LA (FROM HERE TO THERE)
D’ICI A LA follows French painter Eric Figue-Henric as he weaves his two passions – art and spirituality – together. In the south of France we watch as he conceives, plans, and executes a new piece of art; in India we travel with Eric to holy sites and share some of his mystical experiences. D’ICI A LA is a movie that spans art and spirituality; it is an essay on an intellectual man, a spiritual man, an artistic man.

Rarely does a major airline select an independent “art” film as part of its in-flight entertainment. “Legs To The Neck” is the exception – a colorful fast paced insightful and amusing documentary about a woman who creates quirky wearable art. Colette Miquelot runs a small clothing shop in a small town in Provence. Her studio is in a former schoolhouse located in an even smaller town. During the course of the film we follow Colette through the many stages of piecing together a revealing and difficult design. Interwoven are scenes of her working in her shop, interacting and having fun with clients, bicycling through Nimes to select fabric, and finally staging a fashion show with an antiques market serving as the background.
