Entering a supermarket a nameless woman is in a blue funk… Blue is a shy colour, without ulterior motives. It does not grab the gaze, like yellow or red. A calming colour, blue slows one down. It is a colour which can set you free, the very colour of the soul after it leaves the body, after all blood sprays out and the innards empty themselves and, once and for all, the furniture of our thoughts escape into the blue... Based on the classic French text, Une Histoire de Bleu, by Jean-Michel Maulpoix.

A Faun is new born, a young man riding history, learning to love, to fight and to win. Growing an evolving, he becomes the symbol of an era, a myth, a philosopher, a half-God, seemingly all-powerful and invincible. But this Faun is fated, town from the Earth he loses miserably, he falls and gets lost in the eternity of night... freely inspired by Mallarme's symphonic tone poem of the same name.
