Feeling deprived of his status and confronted with a fear of his own disappearance, a man tries to renew links with his vital forces and lost faith, through the incantation of a parallel heroic tale. At the very heart of the aesthetic of archival films and in particular their televisual reinterpretation, Sandy Amerio expresses the possibility of a vertiginous return of the Second World War into the present. A remarkable documentary, DRAGOONED deploys hypnotic magic, an emotional trap where the rituals of fiction colonize reality.
