Patrick BOKANOWSKI


Nationality: french

Patrick Bokanowski. French filmmaker and artist who has developed a manner of treating filmic material that crosses over traditional boundaries of film genres: short film, experimental cinema and animation. His work lies on the edge between optical and plastic art, in a gap of constant re-invention. Patrick Bokanowski challenges the idea that cinema must, essentiallly, reproduce reality, our everyday thoughts and feelings. His films contradict the photographic objectivity that is firmly tied to the essence of film production the world over. Bokanowski’s experiments attempt to open the art of film up to other possibilities of expression, for example by "warping" his camera lens (he prefers the term "subjective" to "objective" - the French word for "lens"), thus testifying to a purely mental vision, unconcerned with film’s conventional representations, thus affecting and metamorphosing reality, and thereby offering to the viewer of his films new adventures in perception.
