Strom života

Music: Jean-Jacques Birgé
Color: Colour
Language: No dialogue

From a green surface emerge the contours of a tree standing on the edge of a rainforest, the branches lightly swaying and the leaves slowly slicing traces of their movement into the endless plain. Even if in some places the surface of the image has healed, digital disintegration can cut off another piece, and this process does not cease until the tree dissolves into the uniform mist.

Composer and filmmaker Jean-Jacques Birgé created this piece for string orchestra after being inspired by the films of Alfred Hitchcock and Michael Snow.
