STORY :

1/ An iron trunk (tin trunk, in reference to Kubrick’s monolith) opens and from the inside a thousand spaceships take off.

3/ These wonderful worlds look like Ali Baba’s cave : there are all kinds of objects, tools, fantastic space which make the small crafts slow down and stop as they are very interested in their discovery.

4/ After contemplation comes action : The sets and the objects come to life in all directions, because of the presence of crafts coming from space. It’s a nice party which will only be interrupted by the sound of a door opening...

5/ Video (pixillation, with real characters, student actors) : A group of French and Czech students alerted by some noise coming from the workshops arrives. They are surprised to see that their desire has become reality : while they were gone the small sculptures have become alive. Everyone takes back its creation, the small spaceship, and put it back into the trunk. After being closed, the trunk starts vibrating, moving and transforming...
