More info:


A journey divided into five segments, moving from chaos to harmony through gaps of destruction. This is also the story of a marriage, between Martine Elzingre and the sun, which is the source of both life and death in ancient solar culture. Or maybe Courant’s film Aditya can also be considered as the story of a dream. As a female dream-like transition that can be perceived alternatively as an essay regarding cinematographic light. Through the free and lucid eye of his Super 8 camera, Courant’s shutter opens and initiates the Eighties with the first part of his tetralogy Le Jardin des Abymes. Featuring music that ranges from Steve Reich to Vivaldi, from Philip Glass to Santana, the soundtrack, as was highlighted by Lysianne Léchot, creates its own trip: a passage from “the repetition of synthetic music to the harmony of classical”.
