Hervé P. Gustave

France, 2012, 86 min., French


Hervé P. Gustave definitely opens to fiction with his last film, Les mouvements du Bassin, where he leaves his tendency towards auto-fiction and film-diary. That doesn’t prevent him to embody the main protagonist, named also Hervé, a former worker in a zoo absorbed by self-defence classes who starts to work as a night watchman in a factory. In the corridors of a hospital, one of the many urban no-places that appear in the film, his fate will cross the one of another protagonist of Les mouvements du Bassin, a brave woman that after suffering troubled abortion seeks desperately the way to become pregnant again.


Hervé P. Gustave

Hervé P. Gustave (known by the acronym HPG) is an actor, producer and director of pornographic films born in France in 1966. Since 1995, when he presented Acteur X pour vous servir, a short between auteur diary and porn which attracted the attention of the French Cinémathèque, HPG has developed a parallel career as a filmmaker where his experience in the adult entertainment industry finds a different way of expression and significance. That’s what he considered, for instance, in his documentary HPG, son vit, son oeuvre (1999) and in his feature film debut, On ne devrait pas exister (2006), selected for the Cannes Fortnight. In 2011 he supplied the artist Raphaël Siboni with thousands of hours of succulent behind-the-scenes porn material which the latter organised in his documentary Il n’y a pas de rapport sexuel.
