The «Second World Premiere" of his films took place on the 28th of September 2001 at the Cinematheque Française, at the Boulevard Bonne Nouvelle theatre, as part of a syncinematographical representation, organised by the Braquage organization, as well as the support of spectators. A sort of «Monsieur Loyal" of my proper synfilm, I animated this presentation and had it filmed by 3 different crews each with different points of view. From the original film, as well as the 3 videos made during that very evening, I then created an original video with sounds that I had at my disposal: music used during the evening, from the «first wordl premiere" (already published in Volume 1), sound from the séance itself, and even some old tapes, whether it be a song by my mother, or a text that i read during my retrospective show at the Pompidou Center in Paris during the 1980s. Constantly enriched by new elements, chemical film treatments, photographs, as well as videoediting techniques, this video was subjected to a number of successive publications, progressively complex, and given the possibility to continue being, by me or by others. We find here the sounds of my presentation during the «Second World Premiere", that sheds more light on the profound direction of my work, from ludic presentations to political manifests and even theology.
