Depuis le silence

Thomas Corriveau
Canada | 2016 | 9’48 | National preview

In 2011, Thomas Corriveau created animated images for the choreographic show Jusqu’au silence, a solo by his sister Sophie. Five years later, he develops his own animations by combining them with the shooting of the show to make a film. This new work symbolically extends the experience of the initial show, obtaining a vibrant and powerful product. Brother and sister take us to an intimate and contrasting universe, which vacillates between balance and madness, imagination and vertigo.
