AU BORD DU LAC
(version restaurée)

by Patrick BOKANOWSKI
1993 / 35mm / color / sound / 1S / 6' 00

Restoration completed in 2015. The 4K scan was made by the laboratory Eclair Group using the best available sources: namely, the original 35mm negative for the image and a 35mm magnetic soundtrack for the sound.
The entire restoration process was supervised and approved by Patrick and Michèle Bokanowski.

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.

"It is true that the unidentified people being filmed are not there simply for the actions they are performing, but the time that the scene is taking to be completed is also beyond any normal definition. The colors vary, and we are plunged many years back in time, no doubt because the shot is suddenly reminding us of Van Gogh or Gauguin and the color-tones they used. We are not at the side of any identifiable lake, we are swept up in a different sort of space-time context by the light, the movement and the colors that the place evoked in Patrick Bokanowski's mind. The shore we are on is the quintessence of lakehood, and, as happens in his previous film, THE BEACH, it's as if the proximity of water metamorphosed everything around, fluidizing all of the matter into endless spirals before our delighted eyes." - Jacques Kermabon from BREF magazine, March 1994
