“Lucy Besson is fascinated with video stills and the way it relates to the medium of photography. In a way, these experiments within┬áthe vacuum between still photography and the moving image┬ácan be seen as a continuation of those by the Surrealist movement in the 1920s.” – GUP Magazine, Amsterdam

“Award-winning experimental film producer Lucy Besson depicts intimacy, quite literally, in a new light. Her short film, “In the Vacuum,” experiments with negative space to show the slow gestation of the body after birth, as it continues its movements and metamorphoses, throughout life.” – Claudia Moscovici


“How it feels to be weightless and to be released from gravity, to arrive in emptiness with empty hands, to break free from all ties, to be far from the fast chaotic city life? Back to yourself, back to your element.This desire became reality in my video ‘In The Vacuum’.” (4.24min)
