A film by Christophe Loizillon – 34 mn – 2012

Still frames

Photogramme - Homo/Vegetal


The film is made with six long shots during which the realms of man and plants are intertwined: a fern and a car, two tomatoes and a worker, hands and flowers, a tree floating in the night, vegetables and hands, a tree in the wind.
Homo/Vegetal is the third part of a trilogy consisting in three short films. It follows Corpus/Corpus and Homo/Animal.
This trilogy explores the bonds which humans tie with the other forms of life whether they be animal or vegetal. Man’s awareness as a living being among living beings is thinning down. Little by little, we have stopped to view animals as plants as actually living.
