Where is our body ?

Today we move through the vision, since the invention of cinema in 1895, in areas where the human body could not actually be. Viewers face the film of the Lumière brothers “The entrance of the train at La Ciotat station” ,in 1895, were really scared, really thought that the train was going to crush them, ie their body was at the location of the image, and not at the actual physical location. Our real body is probably a body/vision.

Recently, with flying cameras accessible to all, how this question aking ? Which new, aesthetic, philosophical, political, these “unhooked operator” images, which are already mapped our daily, invite us ?

First experience for me to make a film through a drone camera, to my knowledge very few had used to their creative potential (beyond the anecdote of the “airplane view” except “Shining” (1980) by Stanley Kubrick).

First attempt to offer a private world within the disembodied vision.

With the complicity and pulse of Agnès de Cayeux.
