The Song of the Storms
Le chant des orages
During a storm, the animals in a small mountain village start having strange seizures. Emilie, 8, and her best friend Manon, decide to investigate. They discover that there is a link between the song of the storms that only Emilie can hear and the installation of a radio antenna.
Emilie and Manon, 8 years old, live in a small village in the mountains. During thunderstorms, Emily hears a melodious music emitted by the thunder that the others do not perceive. During an outing in the forest, a thunderstorm breaks out. Emilie is seized by the dissonant thunder music. Around the girls, the animals begin to have strange fits. The two girls decide to investigate the causes. Emilie is convinced that there is a connection to the disruption of the thunder music. Soon, the girls realize that the village’s new radio antenna was turned on the day before the storm that caused the animals’ seizures.
The song of the storms was fueled by our childhood passion for science. Our appetite for knowledge inspires the character of Émilie. She is attentive to her environment, has a lot of compassion for animals and she likes to investigate and to go beyond for the ideas she defends. The film raises questions about the balance between the comfort brought by technology and the respect for nature. However, we remain at the level of a child for whom the issues related to technology are complex and secondary to the well-being of animals. The story is not meant to be moralistic on this subject, but seeks to make young viewers aware of these issues. Also, it will not be dramatic - it is a film of adventure and investigation with moments of comedy.
