Screening of the film Retouches
Carried by an airily animated camera, we move through the film between the sound of waves and a sleeping woman’s breath. The music (Normand Roger) dynamically follows the animation’s shifts of rhythm. Unexpected scene changes provide surprises. A fascinating journey full of visual adventure.
Georges Schwizgebel, Switzerland, 2008, 5'35"
