In December 1995, a serious clot on the brain left Jean-Dominique Bauby, a journalist and father of two children, in a deep coma. On awakening, he had completely lost control of his motor functions. He couldn't move, or talk, or even breathe without help. Only one eyelid in his inert body could move. This eyelid became his link to the world, to others, to life. He blinks once to say yes, twice to say no. He uses it to choose the letters of the alphabet dictated to him by his visitor, thus creating words, sentences, complete pages?
BIOGRAPHY
Brooklyn (New York), 1951. His paintings and sculptures have been exhibited in the most important museums and galleries in the world, including several retrospectives. In 1996, he wrote and directed his first feature, Basquiat, followed by Before Night Falls (2000), winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Venice Festival and an Oscar nomination as Best Actor for Javier Bardem. An exhibition of his work can be seen at the Tabacalera in San Sebastian during the Festival, including a special screening of Berlin, Schnabel?s film about Lou Reed.
