The sensations created or amplified by sounds or by the association of images thus make present an invisible, very pragmatically called an " hors-champ " because situated outside the field (of vision).  

"Standing halfway across the room from where I am filming them, the rudimentary setting contrasts with their desire to rebuild the club and reminds me of Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper".  Suddenly, the desolate place becomes a rich place that radiates with the fervour of the members, it refers to the mystical atmosphere of the first apostles and can be a sequence that testifies to the emulation, the fervour present within the Lions Clubs.  I also used an additional soundtrack created from the favourite song of one of my informants. It's a song he regularly listens to when he drives across the country in his limousine, I realised when I was filming him. By having an artist reinterpret and transform Boccherini's Minuetto, which is my informant's favourite tune, during the editing process, I exacerbated the relationship that this rich man has with the population during the driving sequences. » (de Hasque, J.
