Year of Release


In the style of a digital conference, Mon corps virtuel et mon double (My virtual body and my double) plunges us into the testimony of the artist Simon Senn who has the disturbing experience of embodying the digital replica of a female body thanks to virtual reality. Together with programmer Tammara Leites, he also creates an artificial intelligence powered by his own personal data and capable of writing. A film that reveals the unexpected entanglement between technology and human beings.

Film director : Bruno Deville Production : Bastien Genoux Coproduction : Detours Films, RTS Radio Télévision Suisse, Théâtre Vidy-Lausanne, Compagnie Simon Senn With the support of : Fonds DE LA SCENE A L’ECRAN Partnership : TV5Monde. Based on the performances by Simon Senn
