We see the site of an unknown disaster, the debris of history that constitutes the story of Earth. Fifty humans are lying there drifting between consciousness and unconsciousness, life and death. Occasionally, one of them emerges into the foreground – clenching a fist, batting an eyelid, or shedding tears for his neighbour. At other times, these figures recede from the light, losing their individual shapes to form a gigantic organism, breathing in unison, pulsating like a jellyfish on their journey across Earth.
The live soundtrack is provided by FOUDRE! the new drone project created by Frédéric D. Oberland (Oiseaux-Tempête, FareWell Poetry), Romain Barbot & Grégory Buffier (Saåad). For this special expanded cinema performance, the trio is joined by ondes-martenot's virtuoso Christine Ott (Tindersticks, Yann Tiersen) and the electronic/noise artist Paul Régimbeau (Mondkopf/ Extreme Precautions).
