RÉPÉTITIONS is a french expression that names the act to repeat something, it’s also the word used for rehearsals.
2 dancers, a choreographer and the director play their own role in this short movie showing a team in the act of making. Micro and meta directions given by the choreographer and the director are being appropriated by dancers, making those indications an expression of their own. And, in between the execution of those tasks is emerging a short term system of affects and common energies that paths the way to a deeper mutual field of understandings. - Charles Dillon Ward

French writer Roger Caillois was surprised by the Second World War in Argentina and was forced to stay there. He visited Patagonia in 1942 where he began to develop a passion for the mineral world. In 1970 he wrote The Writing of Stones, a philosophical commentary on his own collection of stones.
Throughout his life he maintained a correspondence with Argentine writer Victoria Ocampo.

The film reimagines this story and portrays it evocatively through digital collages representing a fantastic Patagonia and a voiceover which is an imaginary letter from Caillois to Ocampo. At the same time the film conveys some of the thoughts and feelings of the filmmaker during his stay in the countryside of Portugal, when it was conceived.

In the regular bass sound surround space, you could find there’s a few teenagers are having a madness house party, and there’s a girl awake but exhausted for being there. There’s a slightly smog or light gently but regularly move in the space. The smog represented a spiritual inside a space. It could be the spiritual from you or others. It’s like you are just in a conference or a party and suddenly there’s something pull your spirit away from your body. It makes you look at yourself in a different angle, but you’re still in the group. What would you do and what’s the connection between you and others?
If the smog was another you – a same existence from another world to look at your body in this group full of chaos and desired. However, there’s nothing you can changed as a member in this group. All you can do silently look down at your body, and move away quietly.

Spectral Rainbow Frequency is about creating an experience akin to a certain type of synesthesia, as if all hues of colors comes, emerging and piercing through darkness accompanying the soundtrack.

Synesthesia is a perceptual phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. The earliest recorded case of synesthesia is attributed to the philosopher John Locke, who, in 1690, made a report about a blind man who said he experienced the color scarlet when he heard the sound of a trumpet.

The whole extent of globalization and capitalism is often reflected in day-to-day actions.
A man leaves his picturesque mountain farm every day to go to the neighboring small town to assist in the production, in several shifts at a conveyor belt, of articles that – in both his own immediate neighborhood and on the other side of the world – can cause extreme distress.
A boy who observes these things happening, and who is not impervious to their effects.
A cautionary narrator who shows that the words of Erich Fried, now more than fifty years old, are more relevant and more far-reaching than ever.
