Visual artist Stéphane Blumer has created a feature film compendium with sound artist Doug Haywood which is being premièred in London. The feature film compendium Nostalgie de la Boue relates the journey of hundreds of isolated people walking in deserts.
Made exclusively with found footage taken from worldwide cinema, feature films have been edited and turned into new narratives where protagonists interact with each other without ever meeting. The original audio has been deleted and sensitively replaced with a new original soundscape composed from library, atmospheric and Foley sounds. Although the paths of each character never converge, their thoughts suggested within mere looks and wordless exchanges give a hint of communication and interactions.
