Big Giant Wave

Directed by Marie-Julie Dallaire
Canada, 2020 (documentary, 88 minutes, black and white, Dari Persian / English / French / Spanish)
Also known as "Comme une vague"

Film Description:
"Big Giant Wave is an ode to music, the invisible abstract and fleeting sequence of sounds that creates in the brain the same reaction as chocolate, sex, or drugs. Conceived as a cinematographic wave, this documentary takes us from Canada to Italy via Sweden, Mexico and the American West Coast to meet fascinating scientists and artists who, from their various backgrounds, illustrate our essential connection with rhythm, music, our planet, the brain, daily lives and our collective humanity."
-- Le Festival International du Film sur l'Art / International Festival of Films on Art (source)
