The Park.

Summer time. A teenage boy and girl have their first date in a park. Hesitant and shy at first, they soon discover each other, get closer as they wander, and end up falling in love. But as the sun goes down, it is time to part… And a dark night begins.

Director.

Damien Manivel (1981, France) has worked as a dancer and contemporary circus artist. In parallel to his job, as a performer, he has been making short films. His short The Lady with the Dog (2010) has been selected for the 2011 Tiger Awards competition in Rotterdam and won the Jean Vigo Prize the same year. His latest short, A Sunday Morning, was selected at the 2012 edition of La Semaine de la Critique in Cannes and won the Nikon Discovery Award. A Young Poet, his first feature film, has been awarded with the Special Mention at the Locarno Film Festival. The Park is his second long feature film.
