The sea, a “world of silence”? An idea deeply rooted in the collective unconscious ... Yet it is an environment in which marine weightlessness allows sound to travel thousands of kilometers, an environment where hearing dominates the view. The parenthesis of the lock down has created an “anthropogenic silence”. In this silence emerges a song, that of the wild world, which uses sound to communicate and find one's bearings. How to harmonize this sound territory with that of human activities, more and more invasive? As an underwater filmmaker, and ocean lover, to fullfill this quest, I choose to embark the audience on a sensory odyssey, emphasizing the sonic reality of the ocean. We will explore the northwestern Mediterranean coast to the open sea, from containment to the "afterworld". On board a sailboat, we will meet scientists. Committed men and women who seek to define a harmonious cohabitation between man and nature.
