The things that change (2021)
Film
Duration 13 minutes, digital HD colour 16/9, starring Stephanie Sant, original soundtrack by Frederikke Hoffmeier (Puce Mary)

Ghosts, psychedelism, and drifting. A phantasmagoric film capturing a mysterious ritual washing by night. As the splashing gesture is repeated, water begins turning darker and darker. Through hypnotic movements, the film changes through the form of rythmic fluidity. Almost like in some acid trip, once the water becomes unreconizable do we then see this transfortion of the body and self fading into the night and thus becoming invisible to the viewer.

This film was funded by DRAC PACA. It recently premiered as part of Jeune Création 71 at Fondation Fiminco in Paris.
