About this film

Synopsis

This documentary is the result of a two-year encounter with the Dominicans Brothers of Toulouse. To begin with, I had to create a way to visit their historical Jacobin Convent via sound alone, since they had lost access to it. I then discovered their research with Marcel Péres, musicologist and composer, through which they reappropriated ancient techniques of liturgical chant, forgotten with their departure from the Jacobins Convent. I then thought of a form of writing between documentary and sound creation telling the quest of these Dominican friars to find the sonic use of a place that had been emptied.
