Serge Garcia
The actor-director picks up the old telephone, hangs up, over and over again ; the soundman records all the takes. We are on the film set of Declan Clarke’s latest opus, What are the wild waves saying? (FID 2022). To concentrate on the sound takes of an almost silent film : here is an economy of attention, of caring for details. Serge Garcia shows us a string of sequences of flourishing activity, culminating in collective silence and careful listening. Until in the end Declan Clarke shares, in voice-over, his artistic and intellectual heritage, the nexus of all the moments of labour and observation shown here. (Nathan Letoré)
