Painter-photographer Pierre Molinier (1900−1976) was found dead on March 3, 1976, halfnaked in his apartment in Bordeaux, having shot himself in the head. This film investigates the life of this enigmatic and demonic figure, whose art was based on fetichism, voyeurism, indecency and provocation. Playing on his own sexual ambiguity, Molinier used the self-portrait to enact his fantasies and pursue his quest for an androgynous ideal. His work, life and death end up merging, becoming one and the same.
