Volatile, Marie-Pierre Bonniol (Germany, 2019, 9’47”) | Request access to the video


‘Volatile’ ist a short experimental movie edited around the fake synthetic music, done with the voice only, of Stine Janvin and her track ‘Glitch’. The film is made with images collected over a year on the idea of volatile, a term which covers in French both the volatility in chemistry and everything which flies, blow or is related to the air. Building an abstract narrative which mixes natural and artificial elements as the music of Stine Janvin does, ‘Volatile’ is also a contemporary portrait of cities landscapes in their tension between nature and urbanization.
