Gilles Coudert’s film, narrated by Charles Berling, stages a dialogue between contemporary creation and heritage on the occasion of Traversées, a cultural event organized in Poitiers, with Korean artist Kimsooja as guest of honor. The story is woven through the notions of links and sharing that can be found in almost all the artworks, installations, performances, choreographies or concerts on display. The artists talk about their works and also show us their installation process. The film explores how the heritage of Poitiers and the works themselves come to life as residents and tourists participate in the event, establishing a link between past and present.
