The film Sur les traces tells, through the memory of five participants, different experiences in the class named " the gesture communication" held by Lygia Clark in the beginning of the 1970s. Originally from Brasil, the artist Lygia Clark worked as a Professor at the Sorbonne University in Paris between 1970 and 1975. Personal testimonies accompany the reconstruction of the “super 8" recordings where a few moments are described as a sort of collective ritual. Relying on their memories and watching the few precious remaining pictures, they recall and recount different moments that are typical of those intense situations that they lived in person.
