Absis and Marguerite Duras meet in the 1970s. From this meeting was born a friendship and from this friendship a collaboration. In 1976, Absis directed Cygne I and Cygne II: Marguerite Duras and Michael Lonsdale being the voice-over, Bruno Nuytten holding the camera. The films were shown at the Festival du Jeune Cinéma de Toulon in 1976, where they received a warm welcome. On the other hand, the most radical film of Marguerite Duras, L’Homme Atlantique (1981). Together, with the films of Absis, a friendship finds its place on the screen.
