DE CHAQUE INSTANT / Each and Every Moment / Zu jeder Zeit

DE CHAQUE INSTANT / Each and Every Moment / Zu jeder Zeit

In January 2016, documentarian Nicolas Philibert (To Be And To Have) was sent to the emergency room after suffering an embolism. Whilst in hospital, he decided to make good on an idea that he’d had for a number of years to make a film as a tribute to healthcare staff. His documentary Each and Every Moment follows nurses being trained in the Institut de la Croix Saint-Simon in Montreuil. Philibert takes a direct-cinema, observational approach to the film. There is no music on the soundtrack, and it’s a celebration of the hard work and the learning that goes into training the oft-underappreciated group. (Kaleem Aftab, Cineuropa)

Nicolas Philibert
Born in 1951 in Nancy, Nicolas Philibert studied philosophy before he co-directed, with Gérard Mordillat, his first documentary, “His Master’s Voice”, in 1978. He has since signed over ten films including “To Be and to Have” (2002) which was awarded the Prix Louis-Delluc and was nominated for Best Film at the César Awards. “Each and Every Moment” is his latest feature documentary.
