Dark room dreams get lost in the flat screen #1

The Shoe a short film by André Saraiva
It’s a character very close to any young French guy who likes to flirt with girls in Paris.
  André aka Monsieur André aka Monsieur A, born Andre Saraiva. He is a French graffiti artist. He paints a distinctive stick-figure character, usually with a top hat and an 'X' in place of one of the eyes. He started doing graffiti in 1985.
  Born in Sweden, he became famous in the late 90's with Mr A, a cartoonish character with a round head, a cross and a circle for his eyes, a big smile and very long legs, which he used to draw all over the streets of Paris. André was formerly married to French/American electro artist, Uffie. From Parisian street artist to international nightlife buiseness man, restaurateur and hotelier, André Saraiva has a knack for adding a liberal dose of cool to anything he touches.
  André Saraiva pulled from his personal experiences as a modern day bon vivant for his directorial debut "The Shoe", but the artist and club owner also channeled the cinematic ghosts of his leading man.  Saraiva drafted a gang of his friends for the film’s cast, including Fitzpatrick, Saraiva’s paramour Annabelle Dexter-Jones, French actor Nicolas Duvauchelle , actress Joséphine de la Baume and model Poppy Delevingne.
