Silvia Maglioni et Graeme Thomson

Printemps des Laboratoires #5

Extra Sensory Perception


A mist-enveloped forest some 20 million years old, vestige of a world that existed long before human beings came along ; the whistling melodies of a language in danger of extinction ; the powers of exhaustion of two of the living-dead in flight from debt. With this scattering of seeds of fabulation, Silvia Maglioni and Graeme Thomson glide above the circumference of their new film in progress, Common Birds, and lead us into the fragile yet ever-expanding ecosystem of the birds, flitting from Aristophanes to Hitchcock, John Cage to François-Bernard Mâche to Merzbow.
