Plays of light on the plain and the sea,
in the towns and on the canals.
In this counterpoint will also feature the artist,
The cinema allows us to imagine a way
to see the light, to personalize it through
intermediaries, a blind man for instance, to make it
clear how the desire to take hold of it may arise, when we have
grasped the sadness of the world
when it is absent from it.
