Synopsis: The Orphan's Gifts is a film which explores reminiscences of a childhood through the materiality of space and light. Visiting emotions and memories with personal existing objects.
The performances that are filmed in this familiar and cold space bring into play the ambiguity between an home and a museum. The building up of the piece bring forth reflections about the relation between subject and object. By way of physical movements of blinds, the space transforms into an apparatus. Through those different dimensions of space and time, the storystelling opens up a path between the difference states of unconscious and subconsciousness.
