It is on Place de la Concorde in Paris that Yo Ota shot this Super 8 movie («ANTONYM OF CONCORD(E)») using a Kodachrome 40. What is the conflict in which the filmmaker is interested in here? In the execution of Louis XVI... Yo Ota is always interested in the flow of cinematographic time and he made this discordant-time movie by shooting the displacement of pedestrians and the circulation of cars on Place de la Concorde. He also evokes the disappearance of Kodachrome 40. Indeed, Kodak announced they were discontinuing sales of their S8 Kodachrome 40 Movie Film in September 2006, a few months after this film was made.
