Listen to the Beat of Our Images

Director Audrey Jean-Baptiste,Maxime Jean-Baptiste / 2021 / France

As humans shoot for the stars, what do we lose along the way?

Delving into the audiovisual archives of France’s National Centre for Space Studies, Listen to the Beat of Our Images employs a fictional narrator as a mouthpiece for the very real experiences of a generation of dislocated French Guianese people. Anchored on the establishment of the Guianese Space Centre in the town of Kourou, this film – which previously screened at Clermont-Ferrand, CPH:DOX and Hot Docs – exposes the human costs of the space race, colonisation and modernisation.
