CROSS

by Christophe GUÉRIN
2014 / Super 8mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 4' 49




Cross is a course through the city. It is also an evocation of the crossroads of the city center of Le Havre, rebuilt in an orthogonal frame by Auguste Perret after the carpet bombing in September 1944.
Cross is a condensation of this very special urban landscape.
Time condensation : The journey into the city, filmed in discontinuity is returned by a precipitate image stream. We do not stroll, the visit is on the run, at the risk of falling.
Space condensation: The courses overlap, intersect; the views are multiple, the horizon is lacking, the lines intersect. The ordered space of the urban frame is completely blurred.
Music : Emmanuel Lalande
