For the lost

Pierre-Yves Vandeweerd, Belgium, 2013, 16 mm, Format diffusion : 1.77 (HDV 16:9), 77 minutes

The storm is a snow tempest which disorients and confuses. It is also the name given to a melancholy provoked by the harshness and length of winter.
Where the storm blows, men erected belfries to call back the lost. And the shepherds, subject to the will of their seasonal migrations, used their flocks to invoke the lost or forgotten souls.
Guided by the sheepbells of a flock and by the evocations of the lost, this film is a voyage through storms; those of the mountains and winter, those of bodies and souls, those which remind us that which nature has not obtained from our reason, it obtains from our madness.
