The strength of contemporary experimental cinema has encouraged us to meet and to film the most active filmmakers, distributors, movers and shakers in this art form. This developed into a number of autonomous portraits, forming a series demonstrating the plurality of approaches and practices in experimental film. Our independent productions introduce or complement the work of the artists, technicians, distributors and programmers who participate in the life of contemporary art cinema.
Frédérique Devaux and Michel Amarger have been making experimental films and documentaries since 1980. Frédérique Devaux is film critic and professor. Michel Amarger is a journalist, specializing in cinema, for Radio France International.
This DVD is a collection of the first four Cinéxpérimentaux titles by Devaux and Armager, previously only available on VHS.
Nicolas Rey est co-fondateur d'un laboratoire alternatif, l'Abominable. Ses oeuvres ont été montrées dans divers festivals internationaux. En 2002, Les Soviets plus l'électricité a reçu le prix de la Fédération Internationale de la Presse Cinématographique (FIPRESCI) au Forum du Jeune Cinéma du Festival de Berlin. Entre documentaire et cinéma expérimental, entre abstraction et figuration, entre poésie et interrogation politique, Nicolas Rey est à la fois artisan-bricoleur, artiste et professionnel. Il interpelle le monde qui l'entoure et le fonctionnement de ses circuits économiques, politiques et sociaux.
Vivian Ostrovsky, born in New York, studied in Brazil and Paris. As part of its outreach activities, the program Film Festival in Jerusalem. It is part of the group "Reversals / Six Solutions" since its founding in 1991. She has made films since 1980. Vivian Ostrovsky takes his camera from one continent to another. Sharp eye and situations. Reconciliations of images and sounds sometimes long archived. This nomadic filmmaker is on the lookout for unusual situations that take their strength through careful and judicious editing work.
Pip Chodorov was born in New York in 1965. Filmmaker and music composer, he has worked in film distribution. He created in 1994 a publishing company cassette historical and contemporary experimental films. His camera captures fragments of moments, the world of entertainment, in the etymological sense of the term, the soul of all that surrounds it, frame by frame.
