(EN)
In Ecstasy takes the form of a visual poem to question the collective construction of the female image. This film draws connections between the medieval representations of the Virgin Mary and the Fairy character from popular profane tales. It evokes a form of totemism, where the ambivalent combination of the religious worship of Mary and the pagan cult of fairies gives life to another female image, the medieval avatar of a Mother Goddess that goes back to our pre-Christian origins.

Ce film propose des connexions entre les représentations médiévales de la Vierge Marie et le personnage de la fée dans les contes profanes populaires. Il évoque une forme de totémisme, où la combinaison ambivalente du culte de Marie et du culte païen de fées donne vie à une autre image de la femme, l'avatar médiévale de la déesse Mère qui remonte à nos origines pré-chrétiennes.
