AUTOPILOTE


Mai-Lan wakes up inside a ship on autopilot drifting through space. At the rhythm of the music, the scenes show Mai-Lan on board, exploring its hidden corners through poetic elements.

In Autopilote, I'm talking about the fact that I'm in a moment of my life where I need to step back, to settle things with myself, to understand where my flaws come from, my anxieties ...
I put myself a little "off" to be able to dig in my head, so autopilot because the life continues whatever happens, the ship continues to move forward.
It's a pretty hard and long process, and it's a state in which there are also other close people for whom we can not always be available. "
MAI LAN


The first challenge for me was to match the universe of Mai Lan to mine: having a particular attraction for subjects like technology or space, the idea of a vessel to illustrate Autopilote was imposed by herself. It is by associating this with the state of hibernation in which is the subject of the song that gave this form of crystal prison to the ship. I intentionally wanted to propose something disjointed by establishing tables with slow and contemplative rhythms like the line of thought of this astronaut and its challenges.
