La Fête Sauvage required more than two years of filming in the four corners of the world, in Africa, Asia and South America, for director Frédéric Rossif to create this ode to nature and the animals that inhabit it. Captured in their daily lives, they perform a ballet in front of the cameras that retraces their history. In freedom, giraffes, sloths, anteaters and so many others are revealed in their intimacy, their moments of hunting, resting, playing or even their amorous conquests… Presenting us with a world untouched by human presence, Rossif wished to reconnect with a lost Eden. He has profoundly revolutionized environmental and wildlife cinema, creating a unique visual language in which slow motion and other montages transcend animal beauty. When it was released in 1976, the film was a huge success, selling almost a million tickets. The original music was by Vangelis, a pioneer of electronic music. To give new life to this visual masterpiece, Lucie Antunes brings all the telluric energy that characterizes her musical language. She conceived this sound creation for the Percussions de Strasbourg, augmented by an electronic musician (Axel Rigaud). For this leading ensemble of the European musical landscape, she weaves a unique link between acoustic instruments, electronic machines and images. This meeting between the visual and sound worlds of Frédéric Rossif and Lucie Antunes, carried by exceptional musicians, gives back to nature all its power and its raw strength as well as its purity. A unique moment not to be missed under any circumstances.
