France / 2016 / 76min / French / Ila Bêka, Louise Lemoine
‘Voyage autour de la lune’ is an urban diary, a personal wandering which draws the lines of an emotional and psychological map of the city of Bordeaux along the so called Moon Harbour, an old name given to the Garonne river due to the large curve with which it embraces the city.
The film is a week-long journey from one side to the other of the renewed river banks, an ambitious project by French landscape architect Michel Corajoud. In intimate cinematic language, Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine tell us about the identity of a public space which has deeply changed in the collective mind of the city. The film drives us along the photogenic, tumultuous river in its flows and tides, and drifts into the personal turmoils of all the people met on site during the journey. A vivid example of a film in which a city is portrayed through a collection of personal stories. ‘A Journey Around the Moon’ represents the most ambitious undertaking in Bêka and Lemoine's Living Architectures series to date.
