Synopsis


Regard d’un jeune plasticien sur la recherche dans son quotidien. Manuel, jeune scientifique, transmet avec passion l’énergie de sa démarche personnelle de recherche. En filmant jour et nuit des cellules, il invente des systèmes originaux pour comprendre les règles d’un autre monde. D’échecs en réussites, il progresse tout en gardant les yeux ouverts sur le monde qui l’entoure. On découvre alors que l’exploration des limites de la connaissance se situe entre le réel et l’imaginaire.

Tënk's film review


"Teaching you how to observe.": as one of the opening lines to this documentary, it perfectly encapsulates the uniqueness and aim of this short film that puts research under the microscope, observing its inner core, studying ideas in the making and scientists’ emotions, doubts, dreams, metaphors, correspondence and poetry. Speeding up images is both a cinematic process and an intrinsic research tool, and here it serves as a device to link the two worlds in this little masterpiece.
