Synopsis

In order to maintain a continual contact with Earth, the psychologists at NASA gave the astronauts an imperative assignment to describe each and every of their actions and gestures to the minutest detail.
Through the images of Neil Armstrong,
this film offers a vision of the lunar landscape much like that of a surveillance camera:
a no-man's land where the sounds and words continually fail to come through.

Synopsis fr Afin de maintenir un contact continu avec la terre, les psychologues de la nasa ont donné pour consigne impérative aux astronautes de verbaliser leurs moindres faits et gestes.
`reprenant les images filmées par neil armstrong,
ce film donne au paysage lunaire une vision de caméra de surveillance,
un non-lieu où le son et la parole persisteraient à ne pas passer.
