Inside a museum, nowadays. A diorama represents two young soldiers in the trenches. All of a sudden, we are thrown into the diorama: the immobile soldiers come to life, there is terror on their faces – the camera dances around them – explosions, chaos, fog: everything flies about in the air. With every gunshot, they shudder and curl up.
Through its choreographic approach of animation, Uncanny Valley questions the representation of this terrible reality, and refreshes the memory of the trenches with a contemporary audiovisual language.
