Tears

A Short film by Sabine Massenet

Production year : 2004

    Synopsis

    Women's faces extracted from American series decompose little by little. The video brings to light the mechanisms which bring to tears, theatrical tears, tears in box or, to quote a poet from Ancient Rome, lacrimae rerum, tears were poured in public. The music - Ne me quitte pas - interpreted by Nina Simone, is used as a highlighter of pathos.
