SYNOPSIS

'The figures haunting the film exist in a strange invasive reality. They are subjected to subterranean forces linking them between each other. Their actions respond to an injunction we cannot understand, to which we have no access, but to which we anticipate the imperious Sovereignty. In the heart of the forest an ancient archaic humanity rehearses scenes taken from a ceremony. It is a dream, or a nightmare. The story is woven with fear, sexuality and an animalism that mutes edgy nerves. The film is created from an anatomy of affective and anxious intensities, from which the narration unfolds. This distinctive narration drives the viewer to test the world of White Epilepsy from the depths of his intimate experiences of fear and desire, from the affective network that is his own.' (Grandrieux 2011)

With the dancers: Hélène Rocheteau, Jean-Nicolas Dafflon, Anja Röttgerkamp, Dominique Dupuy
