The debut from clothes designer Agnès Troublé AKA agnès b., follows Céline as she escapes an abusive mother and absent father by smuggling herself aboard the cab of an international freight truck. The driver (visual artist Douglas Gordon) creates an unlikely bond with the eleven-year-old as they travel across the country. The reasons for their mutual need of each other becomes more clear as the suspicion of kidnapping heats up. Charming, surprising, visually inventive and humane, MY NAME IS HMMM… shows the hand of a true visual stylist.
