BESTIAIRE

Synopsis

Animals/People: Along the rhythm of the changing seasons they watch one another. Bestiaire unfolds like a filmic picture book about mutual observation, about peculiar perception. A contemplation of a stable imbalance, and of lose, tranquile and indefinable elements. In the process, the film also seems to be considering the question of how animals can be filmed. A form of choreography to emerge to the accompaniment of the surrounding noises, a cinematic bestiary in which man too takes his place among the stoic, impassive, impatient, wild and rebellious animals.
