Saint John the Baptist

Saint Jean-Baptist

France, 2021, 20’

John the Baptist, venerated as a saint by the church, lived many years as an ascetic in the desert. Manipulating varied footage, Alazad illustrates the subversive, giving meaning to a militant peasant elegy that transforms into a political declaration.

The event is finished.
