Threads / Le fil blanc
“Listen, my love… Listen, my child… Listen to the river…”
There once was a Mountain-Woman, white as snow, who washed away the woes of the world in the waters of a wide river.
One spring day, she heard the cry of wild horses and the noise of chains forced into their noble mouths.
The next day, amidst horrible sounds of metal and fire, the War-Ogre climbed her flanks.
A tale of sound and fury, but of great love and humanity. Seen through the unusual complicity between a mother and her daughter, this is the story of that spark of life that continues to pulsate its heart beating despite all the horrors endured by a broken land. A mythological tale that is on the side of life…
For this world is desperate for poetry.
