A Proud Archive is an auto-docufiction that speaks of rejection and disappointment. It tells a tale of a failed artist who surrendered his dream to reality and became a postman. For a long time, he collected people’s letters and kept them in a dedicated place inside his studio. It was not until the studio got burnt down years after his death that his secret would be revealed. The story is told by the son of the artist as a documentary of the recognition he had always searched.
