Behind the Shutters

  • Belgium
Audio Tracks 

Starting with an empty factory, a family name and a trunk of archives, the poetic stroll of an apprentice film-maker who moves in her grandmother's house. A reverie about oblivion and the invisible, woven of scattered materials, archival documents and language games, for a film-book wondering about the transformation of the female body, the question of an impossible transmission and the fabric of time.

Spanish subtitles are available in the web player by clicking on CC. There you can also change the settings (size, opacity) of the subtitles.
