Renowned French novelist Marguerite Duras's tale of the demise of thousands of antelopes uses powerful imagery that's drawn on by filmmaker Maxime Martinot to make a statement about the nature of surveillance in today's world. A superbly crafted and visually arresting treatise on herd mentality, surveillance and freedom. Eileen Arandiga
