Irish Film Institute -EAT YOUR BONES + INUPILUK


Director: Jean-Charles Hue

94 minutes // France // 2014

Eat Your Bones focuses on ‘big’ Fred, returned home after serving 15 years in prison for stealing trucks. Jason, his younger half-brother is fascinated by him. On the eve of his baptism, Jason sets out with Fred and two other brothers on a crazy night to steal a truck loaded with copper. Since 2003, Jean-Charles Hue has filmed the Yeniche community. The Lord’s Ride (2010) and Eat Your Bones chronicle the adventures of the Dorkel family, bringing together the same non-professional cast. Both films border fiction and documentary while vividly capturing the unique language and character of the Yeniche. (MPR)

Director’s Note: Hue breaks new ground with this frenzied poetic exploration of the little-documented world of the Yeniche travelling community in northern France.
