A poet reads aloud his poem behind the lattice window of a mental asylum; a little Mongolian girl makes fire in a stove and fans the flames as if it were a wolf howl in a steppe. Like a fire, this film grows up from itself in a montage rhythm of motion.
Under the auspices of a Gnostic writing on a secret - and therefore excluding - teaching, Nadya Zakharova places herself at the side of the marginalized. Surrounded by animals, their faces bathed in light, these wanderers are figures of holiness. In the montage, a child is a group of hungry chickadees; a bear in a cage, a poet behind the bars of a window; a book in the mud, a shackled lamb... The title tends towards a vitality whose reverse is destruction. Yet water is perhaps the most important element. But how can we distinguish the sound of rain from that of a crackling fire or the wheels of a cart? The relationships between them in the memory of our human community are innumerable. As between the snow in the night and the sparks of a fireplace... showers of light.
