SOMETHING FISHY

by Philippe LEONARD
2009 / 16mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 4' 37




Something Fishy is the encounter between the traditional fishing practice immortalized in the awakening of direct cinema by Pierre Perrault in Pour la suite du monde, and analog photography. By the juxtaposition of images of these two practices endangered, using overlays deficient, excessive and clumsy, picture paused, the concrete gestuals caused by the body of the fisherman and the filmmaker come together in their relationship to the material by the changes they incur in their respective environments (ocean / light and shadow). The visual dialogue between these two figures proposing the rehabilitation of the object and image, image-living display, developed in the darkroom and re-exposed then projected through the intermediate symbolic return to nature.
