Nicolas Provost

From diverse camera angles we follow a flight with a Boeing aircraft. Images taken from the ground, from the passenger’s seats, from the cockpit and from other aeroplanes are processed in a convincing continuity. A young man and a woman carry on a conversation off-screen. Without ever letting us see them, Provost allows these two characters to appeal to our imagination. In his video Provost gives no unambiguous answer, but in seven minutes presents both moments of tension and danger and of Hollywood romanticism.
