Synopsis

What happens in a moment? A moment of life, is it enough time to see "something"? Slow down a moment... could that become poetic? Life is made up of a lot of moments: 60 seconds + 1 minute; 60 minutes = 1 hour; 24 hours = 1 day; 365 days = 1 year. If a man lives for 70 years, he would have lived 60x60x24x365x70 = 21.772.800 seconds !!!! One could make 21.772.800 short films of a single life!!! In "moment", one follows the "evolution of a second" of a garbageman at work: is this gesture of his mechanical or felt? Can the viewer sense the pride the garbageman has in his job? For a moment, can one possibly grasp the life, the thoughts and emotions of a garbage man? For most of us, a garbageman does not live a life rich in poetry. If we spend 3 minutes to live a second, could a garbageman become more "human"? If if we can understand better the fullness of a second, can one better understand a life? LIFE ITSELF?

Synopsis fr Qu’est-ce qui se passe dans un moment ? un moment d’une vie, est-ce assez de temps pour voir “quelque chose” ? entendre “quelque chose” ? ralentir un moment... ça peut être poétique ? la vie est composée de beaucoup de moments : 60 secondes = 1 minute ; 60 minutes = 1 heure; 24 heures = 1 jour; 365 jours = 1 un an. si un homme vit 70 ans, il aurait vécu 60x60x24x365x70 = 21.772.800 secondes !!!! on pourrait faire 21.772.800 courts-métrages d’une vie !!!! on suit “l’évolution d’une seconde” de la vie d’un éboueur en train de faire son travail : un geste “mécanique” ou “ressenti” ? ressent-on la fierté de son travail ? ressent-on l’existence, les pensées, les émotions d’un éboueur ? pour la plupart d’entre nous, un éboueur ne vit pas une vie pleine de poésie. si on passe 3 min à vivre une seconde, peut-on voir un éboueur devenir plus “humain” ? si, on commence à comprendre la plénitude d’une seconde, peut-on mieux comprendre une vie ? la vie, tout court
