The last song, alludes to the enchantment of the sound emitted by the last male of Kaua'i 'ō'ō, a bird from Hawaii, recorded - analogically - by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. A sound document as sublime as it is dramatic because the male's song is mating, aimed at calling a female who would never arrive. This species died in 1987, thus ending its species. While listening to this poignant love song, we witness the fragmentation and dematerialization of a Franklinia alatamaha, a flower recreated in 3D by the artist, as the plant was declared extinct at the beginning of the 19th century. An essential film, bordering on abstraction, with the flower that stands out only on a desert landscape and for no apparent reason, crumbles with inexorable slowness until it disappears completely. A visual dissolution experienced as in a dream, as dreamlike is the sound of the song that echoes in the darkness of the final sequences.
