Réflections… réflexions

Chantre composed the music for the immersive movie Jean Ranger's Réflections…réflexions.
Within a contemplative vision inspired by the city of Rio de Janeiro emerges a series of
silhouettes, organic entities and human essences co­existing within fictional landscapes.

The project addresses the notions of unconscious intuition and telepathy between humans and their
environment. A non­linear narration exposes a pulsating language that alternates between natural
and urban spaces, technological networks and trains of thought.
