Géant! – Original Soundtrack

Il confronto profondo con sé stessi genera idee.
Per Géant è stato fondamentale imparare ad ascoltarmi, uscire da me stesso e cercare di tradurre le mie idee in musica.

…In attesa di condividere con tutti voi l’intera colonna sonora. Buon ascolto!

Jeux interdits

Se passeggiate per le strade di Douai, ascoltate il vento; le sentirete.
Sono le campane di Beffroi. Ora suonano Jeux interdits.
Mi unisco anch’io a quel suono e accompagno la loro melodia.

Gèant!

Géant è il brano che apre il documentario che accompagna la sigla iniziale del documentario.
Buon ascolto!

Enfant de Gayant

Guardare le proprie origini e ricordare di quanto sia necessario “tornare a casa” per scoprire noi stessi.

La festa, il divertimento, la spensieratezza.
Buona festa di Gayant a tutti!

Sommes-nous géant!

E’ il brano conclusivo del documentario. Il video è un “racconto” dei momenti più intensi di una festa, le emozioni pure che una tradizione vera ma sopratutto sentita può regalare ad ognuno di noi.

“Il desiderio di realizzare questo documentario nasce dalle necessità di guardare le proprie origini, ricordandoci di quanto sia necessario “tornare a casa” per scoprire noi stessi”.

Geant racconta questo, è la storia di un emigrato che cerca il senso profondo della propria vita.
I giganti di Douai sono un simbolo forte, simbolo di comunione.
Le tradizioni sono la ricchezza, creano connessioni, relazioni, unione.Thomas e Benoît vogliono offrire un documentario degno di questa tradizione e di tutte le persone che la mantengono ancora viva!

Thomas Deshays has lived in New York for the last 7 years and, occasionally, feels homesick. In 2016, he decides to make a documentary, the story of his return in France.
He invites two American friends, Andrée and Adel, and helps them discover his native region, the North of France and Douai, the city where he grew up. In Douai the celebration of “Gayant” (“Giant” in the regional dialect) takes place.During three days of festivities, a family of giant puppets made of wicker parades in the streets of the city, inspiring the awe of spectators. Thomas and his friends are astonished by the parade, the enthusiasm of the crowd but also by the commitment of the “porteurs”, the men who lift the giants. They perpetuate the tradition from generation to generation. Our friends encounter one surprise after another and meet local figures who share the love of the region, its dialect and culinary recipe.
Thomas, Andrée and Adel return to the US and remember the modesty of the participants during this exceptional event, the devotion of the inhabitants of Douai towards their giants, the excitement of parading with those puppets – which, although made of wicker, seem to come alive.
Our friends feel renewed with the assurance that humanity is capable of ingenuity based on common cause and shared values.
