Ondes et Silence (Quiet Zone)

David Bryant, Karl Lemieux

  • Ondes et Silence (David Bryant, Karl Lemieux)


Sound and images distort reality, as the filmmakers take us deep into the world of those who suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity in the National Radio Quiet Zone of West Virginia.


Karl Lemieux (Kingsey Falls, 1980) is cofounder of Double Negative, a Montreal-based experimental film collective. His films have played at festivals and art centres worldwide. He is also taking part in the Expanded Cinema section at this year’s l’Alternativa.

David Bryant is a musician, recordist and sound designer and is known for his role in the bands Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Set Fire to Flames. This is his first film.
