Atelier 105, en résidence / March 12, 2024


On the wild banks of a Cévennes river, Philip and Tristan restore the irrigation system of a 17th-century water mill. Following the water's path, they work together, pausing, resting, and sharing moments of calm.

Born in 1991, Pauline Rigal makes films that explore both the physical properties of filmic motion and visions related to the earth's mineral qualities and nature as the birthplace of images. Between a certain documentary lyricism blending landscapes and time through the medium of photochemical film, and fable-like narratives, Pauline Rigal's films sculpt luminous imprints. In 2018, she co-founded the cinema magazine Les Saisons, which is dedicated to film writing practices. She has published writings by Tacita Dean, Robert Gardner, Lav Diaz, Sharon Lockhart, Deborah Stratman, Helga Fanderl, and many others. In 2023, she directed Mills of Time, produced by Gaëlle Jones, Perspective Films.
