Velvia colour reversal film is known for its "superb grain quality, vibrancy and resolving power". 

ÉPIPHANIQUE-ONDÉE is a short film made of stills shot on Velvia.

It portrays the process of identity and the passage of time I experienced on my first ever trip to Vietnam.

As the train travels up the dragon-shaped country, it leaves a trail that demarcates the vertical fauna from the endless expanse of water.
The heartbeats of the machinery melt into mine and the visions that unfold before my eyes rehabilitate what

I had always perceived as vertical, authoritarian and rigid.


Vietnam is a place that lies between memory, lack of it, imagination and geographical reality.
