Une évocation poétique des abattoirs, à l'écoute de la mémoire des murs. L'attente des animaux, leur disparition et les traces de leur passage. Thierry Knauff réalise avec ce film court, sans commentaire, une méditation sur les traces de vie et de mort dans d'anciens abattoirs photographiés autrefois par Marc Trivier.

Instead of giving one, unequivocal viewpoint, this film offers a mix of visual angles, spanning still shots, tracking shots and archive footage. The time frames all are jumbled up, and the soundscapes vastly intensify and maintain our sense of confusion, leaving our questions unanswered. Are we dealing with the perils of a building reduced to silence, or the portrait of a mass slaughter with a wider meaning? Is this a requiem? The dry sounds are rarely synchronous, gradually building up to create a thin musicalized layer, like a faint heartbeat, that throws our initial state of mind, and keeps us on our toes.
