Celui au pasteur

Celui au pasteur is a film done in the first person, in which the son casts a both tender and cruel gaze on his father, a minister in the canton of Vaud at the end of the 20th century. For over a year and a half, Lionel Baier buried himself in his childhood world of parish events, catechist camps and church on Sundays. With a small digital camera in one hand and a directional mike in the other, the film director followed his father around during his professional duties, seeking to discover what keeps this man going – a man whom he so feared as a child, scorned as a teenager and, to this day, knows so little about. The reformation of the Protestant Church of Vaud serves to trigger a number of reflections, even criticisms, addressed by the son to his father.
