Since 1983, the Art Rock Festival in St Brieuc, mixing styles and subjects, has distinguished itself as one of the major events on the French music scene. In June 2005, the very prestigious Carte Blanche was offered to Olivier Assayas. During one night, two stages at the festival played host to collaborators and friends of the director, an eclectic programming of concerts, lectures and experimental cinema. This exclusive documentary is a virtual laboratory of images blending in with sound.
