The best way to escape your chasers without leaving a trail is to walk backwards on your own tracks. That was what François Augiéras believed as he covered a military desert bunker with paintings and later left it to disappear under the sand so no one would find it until the 21st century. Young Augiéras saw himself as an impossible mixture of faun, cursed poet, Bedouin, saint, and gunman. Tracking his biography implies a trip that starts in a military fortress, goes on through several countries and bodies that never last what they should, and ends up in a cave. The first time I heard about him was in Miquel Barceló’s studio, and me and my co-writer decided to narrate the stories of both Augiéras and Barceló. But we wouldn’t tell their recorded biographies. Instead we would tell a story inspired in the two, a legend: the imaginary adventures the people from Dogón Country might many centuries from now, after memories get confused, mixed, and enriched by the fantasies of different towns. A film featuring eccentric adventures.
