Synopsis

Starting from a reel of film purchased over the internet without prior knowledge of its content, the director launches an investigation, also online, that will unveil unexpected secrets about the images seen in that family archive material. In this film-process, the power of moving images to record much more than one imagines when turning on a camera gradually reveals itself, while editing asserts itself as a possible allied tool for a historical and political counterattack.
