SCRATCH DIALOGUES #1

We really enjoyed sharing films with you during the lockdown and want to continue this work with a new online program. It is conceived in the form of a dialogue within our collection, with the intention of exploring possible relationships of analogy, filiation or interaction between the films.

To begin, here are three films that deal with an element that hasn't run dry since the beginnings of cinema:


À FLEUR D'EAU
by Jacques PERCONTE
2009 / Video / color / sound / 2' 02

In South West Corsica​ Crossing Ajaccio's Gulf to tSanguinary islands on the edge of the boat waterline. The sun burst the blue of the Mediterranean sea, and scum it shines a thousand crystals. This is a pure detection film.

Jacques Perconte will present a carte blanche during our regular Scratch Projection sessions at the beginning of the fall season! The exact screening dates and detailed programs will be announced very soon.


IMAGES DE L'EAU
by Philippe COTE
2013 / Super 8mm / color-b&w / sound / 11' 00

This film describes different forms and manifestations of water. The experience of the filmmaker's body immersed in water, sunken into the liquid element, represents the main theme of this poetic essay on the imagination of this element.

post production: ATELIER 105


AUSSICHT VON EINEM TREIBENDEN FLOSS (VIEW FROM A FLOATING RAFT)
by Karø GOLDT
2005 / Mini DV / color / sound / 8' 00

« View from a floating raft composes the image with horizontal stripes (a skyline) which at first form a horizon in the lower portion of the picture. Then, in rapid and irregular alternations, constant vibrations, they fill the entire field. This time the lines tend to move rather than the colors. The rhythms of night and day alternate in the space outside the picture, at the same time enabling it to take on a structure. The broken, torn-up melody drives the visual aspect, the contrast provokes a nearly cheerful sight. The space occupied by the images is an open one. » (Marc Ries)
