My Family in 17 Takes

  • Canada
Audio Tracks 

Québec. Super 8 footage. Fragments of an ordinary life connected by silence and by voices. The voices speak of life and death, material things and spirituality, immanence and transcendence. The silence is the silence of the countryside, but also of repressed memories, things left unsaid, secret things which go on between the two states of mankind, nature and nurture.
