In Unfolding an Archive, Zoë Demoustier unravels the image archive of her father, Daniel Demoustier, from 20 years of war reporting. Her quest for a relationship to images of world events she grew up with is like a journey that zooms in and out. Her reconstruction attempts to bring the archive to life. She makes a critical intervention by dismantling the mechanisms hidden behind the images her father captured. Gradually, a choreography develops, consisting of poses and gestures in a broken timeline of physical memories set to the sounds of the archive.
