L'homme à la contrebasse (Man with a double bass) is a short narrative film which follows an orchestra musician around the streets of New York City. A man carrying a double bass walks through Manhattan on the way to somewhere: a rehearsal, a performance, an audition, perhaps? His double bass is clearly a part of him; an extension of who he is. As he encounters various people in his travels--a taxi driver, a girl and her mother on the subway, a nightclub doorman--we begin to observe that their reactions to his double bass are puzzling and incongruous to his relationship to it. While others see his giant instrument as a burden, he sees it as his reason for existing; an illustration of how we distort our perceptions of other’s realities with our own.
