Léa Carteaux

The Broken Heart is a tale of love, life and death. My father was a heart surgeon, passionate about his work, whose investment in heart surgery was undeniable and absolute. His job became overwhelming for him, he grew tired and depressed. His self-perception inexorably shifted from being someone who saves life to being someone who brings death. Four years ago, after several attempts, he committed suicide. The focus of my video is love: the undying love my father felt for his work and patients, the renewed love for life his patients found after being saved, the deterioration of love for self and for life during depression and the unconditional love that remains after death.Through archives, documentation and testimonies this work enables the viewer to enter the world of my father, his impact on people and what influenced his decisions.
