DE EZEL VAN BURIDAN

Frank Theys - Bedrich Eisenhoet
'Buridan’s Donkey' was created in the minds and the speeches of eighteen boys and girls. The video shows some people who have never met before and, setting out from their own emotions and thoughts, tell each other about their passions. Three images doom out of the chaos: the wood, the church and the factory. The wood represents innocence and obviousness, disturbed by conscience...
