A Way Out of This Image

Pennanen Anu

'Sortir de cette image', filmed at Les Halles metro station in Paris, describes a dense intersection of images and crowds. Archival images, architectural drawings, films shot by local people, their interviews and an imaginary architectural model present us interpretations of the historical center of commerce on its way towards change, once again.
