Let’s imagine for a moment that this train doesn’t exist anymore... }

A Benoît Labourdette film (1’43s, 2009)}

A simpler attempt than usual. A situation that could not have been caused.

“Let’s imagine for a moment that this broom is a human being”, “let’s imagine for a moment that this pavement is a sun”, “let’s imagine for a moment that the night doesn’t exist”... in everyday life, incongruous and surrealistic visions of the world.

Twenty and one sequence shots, shot in 2009, in which I film myself, as I travel through life’s peregrinations, imagining by words a fiction based on the reality I am crossing.

I made this series with an innovative tool, the “Zoom Q3”, the first pocket camera equipped with an excellent quality microphone. It was this camera that invited me to do a work on the recording of the live voice in daily life.
