Gargantua is a fragment coming from a study on the theme of the ‘Undefined’ and the perception of time.
The sequences are handcrafted in a garage-laboratory, in the countryside, using vases, pipes and water.
Visual solutions are in search for another dimension, maybe the event horizon.
The opening and the closure parts, the curtains of the film, exploit the dynamics of fluids at high magnification to imagine otherwordly scenarios.
Glowing stellar nursery and supernova explosions develop along with extreme low audio frequencies generated by slowing the sound of a whale and using non-musical elements (dissonances and frequencies) that don't offer references and that simulate a fall into the void.
The spiralling vortexes dissolve and create the optical illusion of the reversal of perspective.
