Director Statement

'Le Grand Club des Voyeurs' is a very short film I wrote, directed, produced and starred in. I didn't initially plan to star in this film. I did try hiring several actors to play the lead role but they all declined due to the film's subject matter. I firmly believe that where there is controversy, there is interest. 'Le Grand Club des Voyeurs' is a film, like my previous shorts, where genres are blended together to create something distinctive and original. I would describe it as a mystery drama, a psychedelic experimental, and a very dark comedy with surrealist elements. It is not necessarily a film about the lens that may be starring at you, but society in general, and how we judge and misjudge the right and wrong people. - Christopher Beech
