Boxset containing a book and ten artist's films on DVD.
Or an invitation to cast eye back to an origin, to a first glance, to a first image.
Or ten artists and film-makers, ten short films, ten paths.
Or a paradise, the storm, a painting, poems, flowers, the death, the cinema, children, visions, the music, Athens, a quest, two quests, a circle.
Or a bough of white lilac.
Or a collection of original contributions from Mali Arun, Ismaïl Bahri, Hicham Berrada, Jean Breschand, Alexandre Castant, Agnès de Cayeux, Antoine Danis, Maïder Fortuné, Ana Maria Gomes, Daphné Hérétakis, Joachim Olender, Clément Postec, Dania Reymond, which are like so many variations on the first image.
