Denis Cointe films the artist Christophe Clottes in the presence of the beings and environments that permeate his work: the pebbles of the Gave de Pau and the erratic rocks of the surrounding Pyrenees. The objects, instruments, sounds or drawings he draws from them are like evocations of the relationships he has with them and testify to an ecosophical approach to art. Listening to him talk about it, following the rhythm of his walks and his research, contemplating what animates him, is an experience and an invitation to take part in the world in a different way.
