1973 / 16mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 25' 00

Self-shot: a film shot without a camera operator. Sole witness:
the movie camera. Fixed, directed at a single expanse, obedient to the orders
of wires that I manipulate: characters splitting in two through the asymmetrical
filtration of the comings and goings of self-irony.
Composed of various extracts of historical films, such as the Eisensteinian
battleship, intercut with stairways of various sorts; the unceasing use of negatives
persecuted by positives and vice versa; a cinematic-theatrical dialogue between
philosophical doubling and filmic doubling.
