Le texte en Français

Shot on a beach of Brittany (Guilvinec, France) , the fiction we can perceive in this video describes the way of two women through a zone of rocks and algues, from one point to another.


This path, by the nature of it's ground becomes a real adventure.
We can see, in only a few minutes, the known gestures of mountain-walkers, the first desoriented behaviour.


The two women move along as on a moon ground, the first steps on an unknown world; dizzy, desoriented, lost and forced to take the risk, pushed to mutual aid as to being rivals.


It is initially, a long non-cut sequence video, slightly edited with repetitions, slow motions and fix images.


To the innocence of the walkers and their solidarity instinct appears a real social and political competition, a wild desire of getting over the obstacles and this, without dammage and before the other.
We can perceive the fear of falling and the gravity, the ability of adapting to a new enviroment , the social and interior satisfaction of the crossed obstacle.


From a simple walk on the beach , to see the whole human condition, it's failings, fears and innocence : the new heroic actes proposed to modern humans....

 

Francois Aleta, 1999-2002.
