(Version restaurée)

by Germaine DULAC
1928 / b&w / 1S / 11' 13

Since the original 35mm negative is lost, a 4K scan has been made by the laboratory Eclair Group using the best available sources: namely, nitrate 35mm print held by the Cinémathèque Française.
The main focus of the restoration process has been the attenuation of signs of physical decay due to the passage of time, as well as color correction. Original flaws have been willfully preserved.

The project has been led by Light Cone with the aid of a selective grant for the digitization of cinematographic works belonging to cultural heritage by the CNC.

I evoke a dancing woman. A woman ? No. A bouncing line with harmonious rhythm. I evoke a luminous projection on veils ! Precise matter ! No. Fluid rhythms. Why should one disregard, on screen, the pleasure that movement brings us in the theatre ? Harmony of lines. Harmony of light. Lines, surfaces, volumes evolving directly, without the artifice of evocation, in the logic of its forms, dispossessed of any overly human sense, allowing an elevation towards the abstract, thus giving more space to sensations and to dreams : integral cinema.
