Se Fondre

Antonin de Bemels
Se Fondre
Belgium 2006

Trzy postaci, trzy ciała, trzy trajektorie: Pieton chodzi po mieście, Pensee głęboko się zamyśla, Pantin powoli wychodzi z bezruchu. Krótki film o tym, jak radzić sobie z rzeczywistością, która nas otacza. Niektórzy przez nią przebrną, inni przenikną do niej , inni z kolei znikną bez śladu. Istotą jest ruch.

Three characters, three bodies, three trajectories: Pieton walks through the city, Pensee loses herself in her thoughts, Pantin slowly gets out of his immobility. A short film about how to deal with the reality that surrounds us. Some will work their way trough it, some will merge into it, some will melt into thin air. Movement is the key.
