The experimental forest / Foret d'expérimentation

Running time: 22'
At the beginning we see, between black branches, a section of sky with white clouds passing. These grow darker and the silhouette
-like image turns black. We plunge into a visual experiment with the forest. Sounds become distorted, just as the images become increasingly abstract, then almost psychedelic. The outside of civilisation has apparently ceased to exist. The film’s title is ambiguous: it seems to be in the nature of forests to experiment with the observer too. After all, they have been the inspiration for countless paintings and tales. At the end a view across a lake to the edge of a forest. What at first looks like a drawing becomes a film shot that seems somehow familiar. Then the aesthetic adventure is over.
