Essaim is a French word for a flock of flying insects. Like a flock of birds that changes permanently of shape, this film is inspired by the metaphysical character of nature. Conifer trees are dancing in a changing landscape.
Like in a dream we float from one space to another in a fluid movement.
Look at this film as if you were looking at a theatrical piece where the decors change permanently. I try to create a pictorial image in which there’s a play between colors, forms and movement.
