In a studio, artists and activists are invited to bodily improvise their feelings mediated by the cinematographic apparatus: their desires, anxieties, concerns. Within this dark box, the macro-political context becomes intertwined with intimate issues. Amidst this confinement device (akin to social isolation), the scarcity of words favors the emergence of bodies at their maximum power. Upon formulating a non-chronological time, the film focuses on the sensory experience of the here and now: the elaboration of oneself, the filmic encounter, the reflections about a country. (C. I)
