SHELL- Coquillage – صَدَفة
This film tells the story of a child leaving his home by himself, in the middle of the night. His journey through nature takes him to the coast, by the garbage hill in Daora. Following streams of water, the element of metamorphosis, the child’s journey amounts to a rite of passage. Far from a psychological drama, the film revolves around the child’s choice to leave and break with his family and tradition.

Le son est un médium largement exploré, mais peu connu de l’art contemporain. Ce film se penche plus en profondeur sur certaines des qualités poétiques de l’art sonore en documentant l’enregistrement et la production de la nouvelle oeuvre sonore & THAT WAS THE TROUBLE WITH ARISTOTLE du célèbre artiste américain Lawrence Weiner. Ce court-métrage est le document et d’un travail collectif et d’un portait non-verbal et ainsi surprenant de l’artiste dont l’oeuvre touche à des questions de la politique, du quotidien, et du jeu.
