Un Monde Argente

2011 / France / 48min

With a pen from another era, an oriental would have written a series of haïkus. Today, a westerner compiles the contrasts of the moment with a camera. Gin Sekaï is a project with several facets linked to the art of performance, to the presence of a body in action, part of which is condensed by the film during a voyage to Japan. In a series of sequences delivered just as they are, accepting the approximations and saturations of the recording, a man advances in the snow and elsewhere. He confronts his own capacities with the strangeness of places.
