In collaboration with South American photographer Martin Lopez, this video is a visual and aesthetic exploration of the theme of water as an essential but endangered resource. The documentary-style photographs shot in the luscious and fruitful surroundings of the Jean Talon market in Montreal (Canada) remind us of the process that brought the products to the market. How many of us have fruit trees in our garden? How many of us can drink the water from our taps? This is a reminder of the growing distance between nature and our daily environment.
