Memos from October 2008


Transformation: Vivre-Réagir

For the con­test “Trans­for­ma­tion: Vivre-Réagir“1, Julien Las­sort and Matthieu Bur­lot explored the human face, the most exposed and per­sonal part of the human body. Their dynamic por­trayal of “1000 et une faces“2 is a mosaic of por­traits and emo­tions that plays off of the power of faces seen close up. Julien Fargo com­posed the melody that encap­su­lates the film.
