Le Dauphin

West Germany, 1986 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Stephan Sachs

Le Dauphin is about an imaginary journey, reflecting the yearning of the vision towards the 'object' and the picture'. Vision itself is marked with cliches during the search for the original and an understanding of the reign of nature.
