LE FILM EST DÉJÀ COMMENCÉ ?

by Maurice LEMAÎTRE
1951 / color / sound / 1S / 62' 00

One of the major works of letterist cinema, «LE FILM EST DEJA COMMENCE?» had as much of a direct or hidden influence on the New Wave as it does on today's Avant-Garde. Its first screenings in Paris in 1951 became major events. The critics despised it, but this work is and will remain a landmark in film history.
«This film must be projected under special conditions: on a screen of new shapes and material and with spectacular goings-on in the cinema lobby and theatre (disruptions, forced jostling, dialogues spoken aloud, confetti and gunshots aimed at the screen...). This is not just a projection, but a true film performance, the style of which Maurice Lemaitre is the creator.»
