SAFIA NOLIN OFFERS A DISARMING PERFORMANCE TO A SLEEPY, WEARY MONTREAL.
Shot in a single-take, this technically complex, yet humble and subtle piece is directed by the always surprising Jean-François Sauvé. The work was captured by the masterful Derek Branscombe in a way that conveys a satisfying feeling of liberation and tenderness.
In this adventure made possible by Russian Arm Montreal, it is interesting to note that a whole day of rehearsal was necessary to find the perfect camera choreography, and that more than 170 birds had to be individually trained by the very famous Philippe Toupin, visual effects artist, and part-time bird-whisperer.
AN INVITATION TO THE DARK, DEEP, UNKNOWN NIGHT OF A VERY LONG DAY.
