Première édition

1987, 09:00 minutes, colour, French


In a peculiar faraway land, strange inhabitants live in a beautiful, but equally strange, city. They lead a peaceful existence in a complex universe. But one day, a stranger arrives...
Première édition was shot in April 1987, as part of a creative workshop. For about one week, the participants have attempted to bring together "science" and "legend," "fiction" and "reality," inspired by Browning's tale Pied Piper of Hamelin and the course of a virus which attacks the body's immune system.

De curieux personnages vivent dans un pays très lointain, une contrée étrange. Dans une très belle, mais non moins étrange cité, ils évoluent en harmonie les uns avec les autres, dans un univers complexe. Cependant, cette paix est troublée par l'arrivée d'un intrus...
Première édition a été tourné en avril 1987 lors d'un atelier de création où les participants ont tenté, pendant près d'une semaine, de rapprocher la science et la légende, la fiction et la réalité... en s'inspirant du Pied Piper of Hamelin de Browning et de l'action d'un rétrovirus.
