TREMOR is driven by the voices that run through it – the voices of poets and madmen, of a mother or a child. From self-reflexive thoughts to spontaneous accounts, from witness statements to pure fiction, they talk in turns about their experience of violence and war. As we listen to them, our gaze is taken to places and scarred landscapes impossible to locate. Noises from elsewhere filter through. The image becomes distorted and porous. Music starts to play. The film lingers over the presence of a pianist, before diffracting again... TREMOR is a sensory journey between memory and nightmare. An act of resistance.
