Despite being nearly 30, Helene still looks like a teenager. She writes powerful, physical texts with a caustic humour. As she herself says, she was part of a 'miscalibrated batch that doesn't fit in anywhere.' A visionary author, the thinking contained in her telepathic poetry is deep and far ranging, speaking to us of her world and ours. She collaborates with a theatre director adapting her work and has discussions with a mathematician. And yet, Helene cannot hold a pen and has never learned to read or write. She was 20 years old when her mother discovered that she could communicate by arranging laminated letters on a piece of paper. This is one of the many mysteries of a woman who calls herself Babouillec.
'An absorbing portrait of human creativity. Inspirational and informative... If ever there was a movie warning us not to judge a book by its cover, this is the one.' - The Hollywood Reporter
