The Day Has Conquered the Night

The Day Has Conquered the Night

28' 2013
dir.: Jean-Gabriel Périot

Prisoners share their dreams. Each dream is unique, but all are marked by the prison context. 

A recording of inmates talking about their dreams. Through static, close-up shots, we observe their faces and their emotions. Every story is different, but they all share a prison context that leads us, the viewer, to look for additional meaning. The right music perfectly emphasizes the rhythm of the pictures, thus creating even more contexts.
