LANDSCAPES: “LORIENT”

FRANCE

a movie by JEAN LOïC PORTRON

Awhite city, surprisingly modern. A flat, linear landscape where the only relief is found in silos, cranes and crossbeams… Lorient is a port. In 1666, a royal charter gave “the Compagnie des Indes” a few acres of land to create a harbor destined for trade with the Orient, China and India. Then the State made it into a military port. During the war, the Germans made it a base for their submarines. The Allies replied by bombardment and the Lorient was erased. Today, there is a striking lack of maritime traffic. Approaching the quai one finds sails and more sails. Pleasure has taken the upper hand on fishing, commerce and war. The tired seas, the retreating industries, the decline of the Navy all seem to work against the seagoing occupation of the Lorient. The State, financier of its creation, moves gradually away leaving the town alone, anxious, face to face with itself.
