The film is a study of the Sleeping Hermaphrodite (second century AD) which belongs to the Louvre. Animations are key in creating the illusion that the sculpture is breathing at times. It also includes the insertion of three colour images lasting 18 frames; of the view of a myriad of fish making a star dispersal movement, a horde of hyenas devouring an inert animal and of the fall of the Berlin wall. This film is a possible interpretation of the Hermaphrodite’s dream.
