The Story

STORY OF A WORLD FIRST

The Gold Foundry

A strange place for an art masterpiece.

This is a documentary about a place that exists out of time, out of sight, drawing together people whose stories are as varied as they are fiercely non-comformist.
 

 

This former gold foundry on the outskirts of Paris is living its thousandth life, by dint of its uncompromising acceptance of those who’ve made it their home, studio, workshop – or sometimes a rap video set, thanks to its dense “street” vibe.

 

The massive scale of the project this film documents doesn’t surprise anyone at the foundry – nor does much else. The day after a knife fight, the wounded party shrugs off the injury and carries on with his daily routine.
 

The inhabitants actively defend their community’s autonomy, though they leave its doors open for passing friends, clients, or the occasional influencer who shows up for a shoot.

Pascal 'Pboy' Boyart

Artist

Pascal Boyart is an artist based in Paris.
Passionate about drawing since his youth, Pascal Boyart grew up in Paris near La Chapelle, the birthplace of European graffiti.

 

So it’s natural, as a graffiti artist, that he began his journey by making a name in the midst of urban art. His figurative style and technical virtuosity quickly gained him the respect of his peers. Thus, for nearly fifteen years, he covered the walls of the capital with his ultra-realistic frescoes.
 

From this urban background, Pascal Boyart retains an obvious fascination for monumental portraits.
Today, he concentrates on the representation of the gaze and the exploration of his expressive potential.

He pays tribute to the infinite complexity of the human face's relation to the soul, the latter being both the most essential but also the most hidden part of each individual.

 

In the same way as his creative approach, which is as much an inheritance of urban culture as classical sensibility, his approach to painting combines new technologies with traditional painting techniques.

He is notably the first mural painter to affix a Bitcoin QR code to his paintings for donations.

He is also the first to have transformed his murals into digital collectibles, called "NFT".

Film Directors

Yohann Grignou & Antoine Breuil

« As directors & filmmakers, we wanted to document the work of an international artist whose approach goes against the grain of contemporary art. To tell the story of this major work by Pascal Boyart, it seemed obvious to us that we had to build a different experience, a different film, outside the frame.

We have a deep respect for his artist vision, and wanted to create a film that fits with it.

We wanted to have total freedom both in our creative process and in the distribution of this film.
We are young french directors, dreaming of cinema since our young ages, and we wanted to radically free ourselves from the traditional circuit of funding and distribution of cinema in France and in the world.
Offering this film for free was also the big challenge, for our little company.
Exploring something new, and jump into a big challenge with our own tools, just like Pascal was doing with this amazing challenge.

 

Why NFTs ? The decentralized Internet represents for us as well as for Pascal, a future track in our freedom to make films, and this film represents for us an opportunity to demonstrate the strength of the uses. We now know that our next films at Samouraï Coop will be funded and created with a decentralized vision of its productions, and it’s exciting to be part of this revolution.
 

Now, whatever tools we used, the only thing important for us, is that movie, and we hope people will enjoy it as much as we were skin in the game, with all our love and energy in. »
