Interview: Adrian Moyse Dullin – The Right Words (Haut les coeurs)

Taking place within the confines of a chaotic city bus, The Right Words (Haut les Coeurs) is about seizing the moment, taking chances and about writing your own narrative. A microcosm filled with teens and their raging hormones, this debut short throws cupid off its course and then more. Among the ten films in competition for the Short Film Palme d’Or at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, French filmmaker Adrian Moyse Dullin‘s short would then be selected for a slew of international fests including the 2022 online edition of the Sundance Film Festival. It would then be programmed for Clermont and win a prize there. I got to speak to chat with the filmmaker directly after the fest discussing how he charted his young protagonist’s journey, how he worked within the confined space alongside cinematographer Augustin Barbaroux and the he spun Mahdi and Jada narratives.
