French Film-maker Vincent Moon presents "Petites Planètes" during Up to the Sky Festival
French film-maker Vincent Moon sets his footprints in Southeast Asia for the first time with his new project "Petites Planètes", a unique collection of recordings, experiments from around the world. His incomparable approach to video and technique has made him an important figure in the Indie music scene. Vincent Moon started with La Blogothèque (Take Away Shows) for which he filmed a series of outdoor wild documentaries consisting of improvised video sessions with musicians as big as Arcade Fire, Sufjan Stevens, Beirut and Grizzly Bear, set in unexpected locations and broadcast freely on the web.
With "Petites Planètes", Vincent is going further. His new works all revolve around the same question: What does a city sound like? From Indonesia to Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia, Vincent will try to capture the sonic and musical profile of each country, bringing in his artistic portraits, an intimate and emotional touch that makes his movies precious and unique. A must-see screening!
