The long wail of a passing train slips into the heart of the ghosts and everything explodes into silence.
Le long cri du train qui passe se glisse au cœur des spectres et tout explose en silence
An experimental animated film built around a single sound recording that evokes travel, the need to communicate, solitude, fragility, the desire for freedom, the arrival of fall, and our ephemeral existence.
Anne-Marie Bouchard lives and works in Québec City. She has been making videos since 1999. Her films are an experimental, avant-garde experience—impressionistic and evocative: a cinema of poetry. She is a seeker of images, a discoverer of sounds, an explorer of cinema and media art, her work intimate and eclectic and artisanal. Her films delve into the ephemeral and the fragile, gesture and disappearance. She is interested in the impact colour and sound have on the emotive body, and in revealing the aesthetic potential in images of the everyday.
