To attain knowledge, man and woman had to be willing to give up their innocence," says Boris Lehman. Life Lesson is a poetic and philosophic reflection on the theme of paradise lost. Some fifty persons illustrate the planet's convulsions and the world's vacillations. Trying to communicate, to commune with the invisible, they cry out, sing out, give out messages, each in their own way, in their own state of solitude. These are like multiple echoes that resemble waves in the water or stars in the sky. " Behind these images and sounds that have been stifled by today's society, Lehman hunts for noises, cries, songs, messages that go astray. He says that if we look at the invisible we may hear the words. He invites us to look beyond the appearances of social life and to vibrate in tune with life's polyphony that is all around us." - Philippe Simon

Variations poétiques et philosophiques autour du thème du Paradis perdu, ou la perte d'innocence obligée pour atteindre la connaissance. Ici, quelques dizaines d'hommes, de femmes et d'enfants, tentent de dialoguer solitairement avec la nature, I'eau, le ciel, les fleurs, les arbres, les insectes... à la recherche du silence et de l'invisible, tout ce que la ville et la société d'aujourd'hui essayent de masquer et d'étouffer.
Leurs cris, leurs messages se croisent et se répondent, comme des échos dans la montagne, ou des ondes dans l'eau, qui sont l'essence et la respiration du monde.
