The film uses the pastoral backdrop of a beautifully ordinary French village to capture transitory moments of interaction, dissonance, and contemplation between four characters. Witholding any direct sense of commentary or conclusion and without dialogue, the action seems to exist in the pauses between conversation and activity.
The film is part of a group of films exploring the effect of the moment of filming in fictionalising reality. Non performers were invited to spend time in the location over several days, knowing that filming may occur at any time. Their behaviour and interaction was inevitably altered by the presence of the camera and their understanding of the precious nature of a limited quantity of 16mm film and non sync sound. The moments filmed evolved through a live devising process in which connections and responses were made through the filming and editing process itself rather than a pre meditated script or structure.
