The fate of an architect has a very special destiny. How often he has to use all his talent, the all-encompassing passion to create the space from which he will be excluded.

'9 X 9' tells about the journey of an architect, from his home to the office. We only see his shadow and his bike ride in the bright sun turns into a journey of a creative process.

Walls, streets, funny children's cries, the sacred silence of ancient ruins, the smell of freshly laundered or baked bread enhanced by special lighting, accompany us on the road and become a living working material. Now we have possession of the feeling that we do not follow him on this bike tour and are in a different place in a different country, the other streets - those of his consciousness. He was sentenced, and he likes it. Consciousness that an architect never turns off, his particular vision of the world, an experience has gone through them, all of which he tries to synthesize and fuse into one big idea namely 9 X 9.

This year's Cannes Film Festival (Festival de Cannes) will be held from 15 to 26 May. Since its creation, the festival has always remained true to its fundamental mission, to open and present films to promote the evolution of the development of world cinema and the film industry and render honour to the international art of cinema.
