(Des cowboys et des indiens: Le cinema de Patar et Aubier. With screenwriting friend Luc Jabon, Fabrice du Welz, himself a filmmaker with a unique style, has chosen to spotlight the duo Patar and Aubier, who he considers as a couple of deeply Dada, punky, sincere, fierce yet tender heroes.

This is the question du Welz has tried to answer through their documentary which traces the career of this creative duo and the myriad of personalities surrounding them making up a united
collective all working towards a common idea of selfless and decidedly political incorrect creation.
