I have been working on the theme of old age for a long time and asking myself: How does an old woman looks back at her youth? At her vanished beauty? Is it possible to die without any regrets? etc...

So when I was asked to illustrate the song "By the larches" by Erevan Tusk, a nostalgic yet cheerful theme, i saw an opportunity to deal with subjects that I care about with sobriety.The music video was really thought like a narrative short-film, the ambition of the project was to tell a real story.

I believe the greenhouse is a real metaphor of the film's stakes. Bubble in air and time, it protects the expatriated species. From the moment the old woman crosses the threshold, time stops and death is postponed.
