Nocturnes dives into the world of evening horseraces at the Vincennes racecourse near Paris to follow a group of young gamblers who, every night, turn this slowly forgotten place into their very own kingdom. I found myself immersed in a world of echoes and screens filming, for months on end, their calculations, their bodies and their cries to capture their energy.
