An ecstatic stroll among storms leading to sensitivity. When the narrative combines with the sky’s insanities, one cannot but succumb to the charm of this enchanting short movie. It is only an introduction to a bigger project we cannot wait to discover.”

Karine Desbordes, storm photographer

“Without a doubt, here you are on the level of a singular cinematographic object : a poetic sketch relating to the feelings, sensations and thoughts about the stormy concept.”

“Prélude is a cinematographic approach to the storm like we had never seen before in France. And beyond the beautiful images, the narration promises a story that is both personal and rich in meaning.”
