66, rue Stephenson
Like a dark screen stencil, a young woman dances in front of an open window. Although the film is silent, the rhythm of the music to which she dances can be imagined through her movements, often ecstatic. Bidding farewell through graceful movements, the dancer´s place at the window gives way to a view of an urban cityscape.
Trains, tracks, buses, automobiles, pedestrians on a bridge move in the distance, while tree branches dance on in the wind in the foreground. The same wind lifts the young woman´s hair, giving a full view of her face. The perpetual question of identity determines the touching portrait. Parallely, the camera pans into the narrow Parisian kitchen and the inner life of the dwelling home. A film about inside and outside.
