MoMA Presents: Agnès Troublé's My Name Is Hmmm...

Jan 28–Feb 3, 2015


My Name Is Hmmm…. 2013. France. Directed by agnès b. (as Agnès Troublé)

“The first feature by agnès b. (signed 'Agnès Troublé') is a deeply personal, incandescent work that filters childhood trauma through the poetry of the road. Céline (Lou-Lélia Demerliac) is an 11-year old who holds her family together as she bears the weight of sexual abuse by her unemployed father (Jacques Bonnaffé) while her mother (Sylvie Testud) earns money as a waitress. During a school trip to the seaside, she runs away and hides out in the cab of a freight truck driven by a sweet middle-aged man from Scotland (artist Douglas Gordon) who is in the midst of dealing with his own trauma. The film, alive to the beauty of every face and every landscape, casts a magic spell and stays true to the lives of its characters.” (New York Film Festival, 2013)

Organized by Rajendra Roy, The Celeste Bartos Chief Curator of Film, Department of Film.
