SAPPHO - POÈMES ET FRAGMENTS

by Marcelle THIRACHE
1992 / Super 8mm / color / silent / 1S / 15' 00




Study of the fragment, the word, the written word... some are in French, others in Greek, without translation. For those who do not understand Greek, magic of the unknown, word-drawing, form in itself. The beauty of the texts means that they do not need images.
It is not an illustrative film, it is a film about the fragment that reveals itself... reappears... a film based on the superimposition of images... a film in perpetual motion, nothing stops... It is a film about the sensuality which emerges from the poems... images of a moving matter where fantasies can slip in.
It is a film about the poetry of love, the violence of passions, the tears... Sappho tender and violent, philosopher and poet... Sappho who comes back to us, present, beyond the 2700 years that separate us.
