UN SOIR AU CINEMA SUIVI DE POUR FAIRE UN FILM

by Maurice LEMAÎTRE
1963 / color / sound / 1S / 40' 00

The central idea of the first part of this work is to make the viewer imagine that he or she went out into the street that night, entered the cinema where the film is shown and now meets a stranger sitting next to him or her in the room. As in all Maurice Lemaître's films, sound is an essential part of this work. It is he who tells the "story", like an inner monologue. The image, for most of the film, is an autonomous illustration, but it can have indirect, allusive relationships with the sound. This image is also chiselled with multiple drawings, superimpositions etc., which make it of a rare richness.
TO MAKE A FILM, the second part of the session, is an "invitation to make a film", what the author calls a supertemporal work, because it constantly surpasses time, by continuously integrating it into an open film framework, calling for the creation of the public itself.
