Céos Phoébé

David Rodes
France | 2014 | 13 min 28

What is left of us at the dawn of our forgetting? This could be the story of a future memory or that of a forgotten future. A fragment of a mythical dream in our frozen memories. When presence is no longer flesh and our words are murmurs? In the spectrum of our desires emerges the shore of an intimacy become unsayable. In the lassitude of our talismans we count the beads of murmuring and imperious desire.
