Eclipse is a 4min contact or light touch between a camera and 5 characters. It is a tableau vivant written for the camera. It is like a dance between the mechanical eye of the camera turning around the 5 other characters. Something at the same time mechanical and sensual. The camera is like a character, who takes on body through the shadow on the wall, to the difficulty sometimes to find the focus, creating blur, and through the light diffraction in the optical lens. At the same time 2 artificial voices are describing a solar eclipse, pointing the specific light, the specific silence, as if everything was suspended, the breath, motions or even time. And what if feelings were suspended too?
