Journal is a pool of similar one-shot sequences, filmed from the point-of-view of a visitor to a photography exhibition. The cinematographer, who repeatedly followed a strict parcours in the exhibition space, produced a multiplicity of documental visual Journals.
The single screen version presents take # 3. Through the durational experience of a one-shot, Journal questions the production of narratives and their coexistence.
