While walking along Nevskiy Prospect in St. Petersburg, Russia, I saw a young girl dancing this harsh, passionate and seductive dance.
HALLO PAPI by Salma Cheddadi
France, 2009, 6', coul, stereo
Last call to her father. Jana is a young German-Thai girl who plays in (almost) all my films. She grew up in Thailand with her father, whom she has an affectionate but distant relationship with. From a room to another, she walks around her apartment where the red, yellow and blue tint areas light the whiteness of the walls up. A pictorial film.
FACE OF AN ANGEL by Anthea Kennedy & Ian Wiblin
UK, 2008, 5'40, coul, stereo
Face of an Angel was commissioned by Lucca Film Festival as part of its Twenty Puccini project which invited twenty film-makers to produce short works with a Puccini connection.
Face of an Angel is inspired by Puccini’s opera La Fanciulla del West, set during the Californian gold rush. The film is shot in the scarred black landscape of an open cast mine in South Wales, one of the original coal mining areas which fueled the industrial revolution in Britain. Taking the theme of redemption, the film depicts choreographed yellow dumper trucks, portraits of miners and an escape to another life using the painterly surface of low format video. Fragments of music from the opera are woven into an industrial sound track.

ISTANBUL, LE 15 NOVEMBRE 2003 by Fabrice Lauterjung
France, 2004, 11'30, coul, stereo
In Istanbul, November 15th, 2003, I met an old Turkish film director. While he was projecting four super-8 films he had made, he told me a story his city. He explained to me his beginnings in cinema and how he learnt to speak French. He revealed to me a fifth super-8 film and told me about a tower on which countless messages were written in every language. I associated his words with what I was viewing on the screen. This dialogue was not recorded, but its transcription was still possible : I kept the four super-8 films and joined them end to end adding the memory of this conversation : in the middle of the screen like a fine thread, a text scrawls from right to left.

Night. A terrace on a hillside. Children's voices.
A poem. A song.
A fragment of time, a moment out of time.
Ghostly figures, as if struggling to exist, even here, in their own land.
Experimental documentary, filmed in the West Bank, occupied Palestinian territories.
APRÈS LE FEU by Jacques Perconte
France, 2005, 3'10, coul, stereo
A few kilometers from Ajaccio, the burnt earth gives in to the weight of colour. The ground opens up and frees pictorial energies that take over the sky. I see the horizon disappear, but I keep fixing it. The trains continues its way...
