“Think of America, I told myself. The cities, the homes, the people, the arrivals, the departures, the children coming and leaving, death, life, movement, speech. Think of the deep sigh inside of all things alive in America. Bend down. Pick up what others let go to waste from life. So the wind won’t blow it all away.”

Since 2004, Arnaud des Pallières has been working on a visual and sound fresco – a plural constellation of films – depicting American stories from the 20th century, reinvented from archives from the American Prelinger collection. Through this series of films, the filmmaker explores America as one would Atlantis, a lost continent. Diane Wellington, Poussières d’Amérique and today’s Journal d’Amérique, are the result of this original creative process.
