L'Écho des Îles

Separated by four sections, this dance film embraces the unpolished aesthetic of contact-printed color film stock and various re-photographic techniques such as reversal color film stock, homemade filters and light manipulations.


L'Écho Des Îles has two variations: a single channel work

                                                    or as a four 16mm projector installation
