Like roots which come

from nothingness, bodies arise,

take form, grow, live...

A stage production referring in the end to an evolution that could seem strange or even hostile to human existence, short films explore a subject in a deeper way, confronting takes in a natural environment to the modern setting of a cold underground car park or shelters. Then it brings a new dimension and the short film becomes a second work by itself.
