Grosse Fatigue, 2013
A great re-understanding of the history of evolution in a contemporary and timely way. Such a great blend of the past, present in a forward thinking way that still looks contemporary. An “intuitive unfolding of knowledge” and the inability of begin able to comprehend all of this knowledge in a 13 minute video.
Directed by Erwann Lameignère
