Organ is the film diary of 28-year-old Matthieu Pons. When he was 13, he decided to start filming his family and close friends. The first images of Organ were shot in 1994 and the last date from 2006. More than ten years of snapshots of life are interwoven and mixed, like distant memories. Through his camera, Pons' insistent gaze allows his world to be seen. It's an adventure spanning from Ariège, Brittany, Switzerland, and Martinique, from the 1990s to the 2000s. Places and people don't appear in chronological order, but according to the flow of recollections. The scenes oscillate between documentary accounts and experimental mise en scène. The film gives the impression that time constantly passes by, while also making us feel that we can stop it, to linger and remember. Organ is the story of a young man, in which we can also recognize ourselves, and which universally resonates.
