Boucan Episode Two 'La Cible' Profiles a Motocross Legend of Montpellier
Boucan: n.m from the occitan bocan - Noise, fuss, ruckus

Boucan is a short series of portraits combining music video codes and a documentary approach. The 3-to-5 minute films mix video, film photography, VHS and personal archives. The aim being to develop a personal project around our hometown Montpellier, in the South of France on the Mediterranean Coast. We chose subjects who embody the free spirit and the passion of our culture and region.

The first episode Sweet Drift won Silver at this past YDA awards.

La Cible (French for ‘the target’) is a motocross club situated in a former stone quarry in an industrial area near the Mediterranean Sea. The track is run by Sebastien who also lives there. A local motocross legend, Sebastien was born with a condition that normally wouldn’t have allowed him to ride a motorcycle, let alone compete and teach. We follow his daily life with his wife and young daughter.
