De Ismaël Joffroy Chandoutis, film 2017, 21min
An ultra-connected society where waves related to new technologies have invaded almost every space. Three people who are electromagnetic hypersensitive talk about their survival within a world that seems increasingly off-limits to them. The mise-en-scène explores the idea of the deceleration of time as a necessary condition to the perception of a reality that extends beyond the visible.
Biography of the imagination:
Call me Ishmael. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation. Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off- then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.
H. Melville, Moby Dick, 1851
