The Service Hand Bells

Film Trailer

Film Synopsis

"The muffled noise of passing cars down on the street, lulls me.

This gentle surfing melts as I sink into sleep followed by the crystalline ringing of hand bells, stirred by Colette at the living room.

I sleep and I dream of the public swimming pool in my childhood (does it still exist?): at regular steps, a sleep walker wanders over the pool alleys without her bathing suit."

About the directors, Maxime Berger, Julien Carreyn and Juana Wein

Maxime Berger /

Maxime Berger is a director of photography born in Bourgogne, France and currently based in Paris.

Maxime’s film background comes as a very early discovery. At a young age, he equipped himself with several film cameras and jumped into professional life as early as 20 years old. 

He began to experiment with scraping on film, black and white, ektachrome, super16mm and 35mm. He is interested in bringing modernity into a visual aesthetic inspired by the different movements of cinema. He explores by innovating on technical and artistic means.

His work is characterized by hard lights, a soft and organic texture on the image with a harmony in keeping with the vision of the directors with whom he collaborates.

Today he works as a DoP on music videos, commercials and in parallel he continues to work in cinema.

Julien Carreyn /

Juana Wein /

Juana Wein is a director, writer, actress and photographer raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina and based in Paris. She is interested in exploring and creating visual worlds that are poetic, imaginary and that propose new ways of storytelling.

With a background in theater and literature she mixes drama and poetry to arrive to a holistic piece.

From the intimate to the oddity, Juana is capable of putting together sensitivity, innocence and bizarreness into an individual aesthetic.

She carries a particular interest in things that are genuine, often portraying childhood and exploring magical universes that open doors to fear and fantasies.

She chooses to work with supports such as super 16mm film, super 8mm and video tape. 

Juana inquires into the relation between instantaneous mental images with the ones that print directly on film.
