Filmmaker Olivia Burton offers an intimate look at the nuts and bolts of the creative process in this documentary. A French theater troupe is set to premiere their new production of William Shakespeare's +Much Ado About Nothing, and while all looks beautiful and orderly to the audience, the scene backstage is a different story. A combination of giddy excitement and harsh anxiety grips the cast as crew as they struggle to work out the rough spots in the show and get both the technical and creative sides of the show to come together for the big night, with a paying audience seeing their handiwork for the first time. Contre-Jour (aka Backlight) was an official selection at the 2008 London International Documentary Festival.
