Chemin soleil couchant

1992, 13:30 minutes, French


Chemin soleil couchant est un documentaire expérimental cherchant à recréer l'émotion d'un certain type de vie, qui disparaît, et de l'héritage du patrimoine culturel entre générations. Une situation réelle est recréée dans une imagerie poétique à travers laquelle nous parvient les réflexions du jeune architecte en voix-off. L'utilisation de la vidéo consiste ici en une superposition d'images qui nous font voyager entre le rêve et la réalité.

This video portrays a family dear to the author's childhood. The grandfather, now deceased, was once the leader of the fishermen's union. The son tells of his relationship with his father and reveals his vision of the legacy he carries. Chemin soleil couchant is the name of the street on which his grandfather lived. For the author, who has frequently shot in this region, the name is charged with memories and poetry.
