Made exclusively of video clips shot by animals with a video camera between their legs (or tusks), this small film is an investigation of non-anthropocentric audiovisual experiences and of the complicated assemblage of people, animals and technologies.
Not a bestiary, not a catalogue, but an immersion into the animal world, an experience in looking and listening in which nature is like a world of mysterious and total bonds between animals and their environment. Shouts, cries, coats and fur take us to their shore, as though in a world which is foreign to the world of humans, nameless and unlimited.
After Où est la guerre and Attaque, Christelle concluded the Carmit Harash trilogy about a France which is under attack, vulnerable, without bearings.

Students are the protagonists of this documentary, born of the need to bear witness to the installation in Turin of the Stolpersteine by the artist Gunter Demnig and the importance of the transmission of memory, in part through encounters with family members of the people to whom the Stumbling Stones are dedicated.
