This video is a document of a storm, recorded through a window by a stationary camera for the duration of the tape, approximately one hour. The storm was shot in Albi, a small town in the south of France, in May 2007 on the eve of the presidential elections. As the dark clouds circle around the storm's eye, the chattering of magpies in the background issue a warning. Almost 40 years after the events of May 1968 in France, the storm signals both an ominous future and a turbulent past, circling around ideas of revolt and revolution.
