- Synopsis / Plot
- Two young militants meet in a deserted television studio and start to discuss radical ideas about film-making. They are Émile, the great-great-grandson Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Patricia, a child of the Cultural Revolution. They agree that if cinema is to survive it must reinvent itself, it must go back to its very beginning and start all over again, using image and sound in a radically different way.
