How do traumatic events arise in the bodies of descendants?
Can a plant be an indicator of the socio-political balance of power in a given territory?
Abdessamad El Montassir tackles these issues with his latest film, which is an integral part of his long-term project Résistance Naturelle.
Through a multi-temporal enunciation, assembling/piecing together/gathering plants’ narratives, mythologies and fictional accounts/stories, as well as interviews with scientists and citizens, this film in progress investigates intergenerational transmissions emerging beyond all silences.
In the context of this video night, the screening of the film is followed by a discussion between the artist and the audience.
This evening takes place in the context of Leave No Stone Unturned [Remuer la terre], an exhibition curated by Clelia Coussonnet.
