A cinematic experiment consisting of three excerpts from various films on the subject of working rhythm. In this spirit, we see grinding grain, clearing a field, and a “pagan” dance at the end of a possession ritual. Each activity is seen on the basis of a rhythm, such as the sound of the mortar or the song of the farmers.

“I don’t like subtitles because they keep viewers from watching the image. We have sound and image, and the third channel, writing, obliterates the other two – which I feel are the most characteristic of cinematic communication.” J. Rouch
