Salute to Filmmaker Francois Pirot


Born in Bastogne, Belgium, in 1977, François Pirot took a degree in performing arts and broadcasting techniques at the IAD institute of Media Arts in Louvain-la-Neuve, with a major in directing. He went on to direct several short films that were picked up by numerous international festivals. François Pirot is also an actor and screenwriter. He was in the cast for ÇA REND HEUREUX (2006), by Joachim Lafosse, with whom he wrote the screenplays for the film PRIVATE PROPERTY (2006) - in competition at the Venice Film Festival - and PRIVATE LESSONS (2008), which was included in the Directors' Fortnight at Cannes. Mobile Home is his first full-length feature.


After breaking up with his girlfriend and quitting his job, Simon goes back to his small hometown in the countryside, where he meets up with his old friend Julien. The two thirty-year-old men decide to revisit an old dream from their teenage years: hitting the road for an adventurous journey. They buy a huge motorhome, but the trip is delayed by various troubles, and they decide to start their journey... on the spot. Through this first motionless stage of their trip, the two friends, confronted by themselves and what they wanted to run away from, start taking different paths...

Running Time: 95 Minutes

Please Note: MOBILE HOME is in French with English subtitles
