Framed within a small apartment in the suburbs of Paris, a transformation takes shape from Adam to Aïcha. She is evoked through memories, labor, gestures and sounds across a queer landscape of domestic intimacy. The apparition begins and ends. Always with the promise of a future return.
Au cœur d’un petit appartement à l'extérieur de Paris, la transformation d’Adam à Aïcha prend forme.
