Human Walkers in Motion, 10:53 min, Color, Dolby SR, Belgium, 2020

Ethann Néon is a Belgian director. He makes experimental films around the processes of visual reconstruction of time and the division of space within the screen’s framework. The aesthetics of his films is characterized by elaborated splitscreens that play with the frame and the off-camera.

The walk inhabits our being and governs our social space. Side by side or face to face, it implies an exchange. When combining everyone’s specific pace, a hidden harmony arises. Reconnecting with Eadweard Muybridge‘s work, this film projects us into the frenetic rhythm of the steps of fifty walkers.
