(EN) Feature Film: « The seed, the particles, and the moon » by Dune Dupuy

Synopsis: Planet Earth is suffering, and Bouba has just been dumped. That’s when she encounters a group of biodynamic farmers who consider the influence of invisible forces. It marks the beginning of a poetic quest that takes Bouba into unsuspected worlds, meeting humans who suggest expanding our perception of life. Just because love is invisible doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

A word from the author, published in La Dépêche :

My film explores agriculture, which is inherently connected to health, considering its direct impact on what we consume. Our ailing society is daily destroying what could heal it. We poison the soil and waterways, mistreat animals. However, despite my despair at the state of the planet, I make surprising discoveries within agriculture and science. What heals my perspective is marveling at the beauty of life and its mysteries. Healing also comes from the connection to other living beings, both human and non-human. Let’s nourish ourselves with poetry. We need it as much as science to comprehend the world. Let’s not seek THE truth, the exact answer. Let’s accept that there are multiple solutions, that reality cannot be fully controlled. Truth resides in the diversity of our personal convictions, constantly evolving.
