L'HISTOIRE COULE DE SOURCE

Filmed on site in a medieval chateau in Western France, the film gives us a glimpse into the lives of three of the chateau’s former residents.

The “I” of the camera walks into the chateau and enters an underground chamber where the waters of an art installation : Koki Watanabe’s “Possession Ovale,” drip from patterned spheres into earthen bowls on the floor below. Within this endless cycle of water he begins to perceive figures: the ghostly forms of three female bodies. He catches flashes of their past, of the wealth of events and peoples whose history is engrained in the thick stone walls of the castle.
