Directed by Thomas Richards
A woman comes face to face with her overwhelming need for revolution. Does she long for… a rendezvous? Her fantasies become action as she is carried through a series of metamorphoses, incarnating the voices of French poetesses anchored in history. Her soul drunk, she travels through the matter of her dreams, desires and sensuality, becoming the actress of her generative needs. While shedding conventions and in anonymity, she invokes a world in which man and woman exist as one. Her fleeting hour is transformed into an arm with which she confronts herself, asking: what revolution will carry me to paradise, still standing upright in my boots?
