Atelier 105, en résidence / August 1, 2016


When I shot "From Stalingrad to Jaurès", it was not the physical but the imaginary journey between those two metro stations that I was interested in.

"From Stalingrad to Jaurès" was shot many years ago in Paris. After many years, it is a return to black and white 16mm single screen film for me and a return to the image of the male torso, that I first used in my film "Claiming Territory" in 1993. I wanted to capture modern-day Paris and its traditions - the baguette, its history - the French Revolution, its film culture - Godard and mix it up with some crime jazz.
