sadescription Après un feu de cheminée
2mn31   color   stereo   2002   France
by Céline Clottes
The character comes to make love, she's just alone. Still impregnated with this act, the body, not standing with the soul, commits to memory with pain that has just happened.The editing \ mixing of twelve positions who scroll the ones after the others frame by frame is an attempt to illustrate a memory in de-construction; the body tenfold artificially tempting to fill the absence of the other.

sadescription Délices
10mn   color   stereo   2002   France
by Gérard Cairaschi
"Délices" plays on the overlapping of images which, through the pulse of rapid editing, interweave in a graphic and colourful shimmer. Those fluid images combine a body with natural elements in a slow and continuous camera movement. A journey between images, between two worlds, that is symbolically represented by the presence of fish as a link between the surface and the unknown depths of the liquid element : between the conscious and the unconscious.

sadescription I am (not) Seen
5mn   color   stereo   2003   Japan
by Takahiko Iimura
Made for the Opening piece of "Seing/Hearing/Speaking", realizing a sentence of French philosopher, Jacques Derrida : "I hear myself at the same time that I hear." What Derrida concerns is "Hearing / Speaking", but I extended to "Seeing" combining all three perceptions together. The Opening section deals with "Seeing" including the sentences as "I see you", "I am not seen", which are superimposed over the pictures of a face, eyes, and a face in the frames, etc. All the frame shots.

sadescription La caméra aveugle, la pensée captive
2mn50   color   stereo   2002   France
by Suzel Roche
This video is a littlt movie about an extract of consideration on what mean "to see" or "to be blind". With the light of Ghérasim Luca, a rouman poet, I speak about a battle of camera : two people are face to face, they both shot the people in face, like a mirror. Their camera are blind because their thought are caught, "like everything which turns around itself,... which turns around Goodness and Badness".

sadescription Nous sommes tous Palestiniens
14mn50   color   stereo   2002   France
by Suzel Roche
The short movie "We are all Palestinian people" follows the rhythm of a pro-palestinian demonstration which takes place in Marseille. It was "the day of the land" and the mood in full streets were made by contasts : slowness of a walk, activities of a Saturday afternoon, Fatality of the flourished pictures. The point of view is demonstrator's one. There is not editing : just the rushes with their own logic meeting at random, the "intestinal" music of David Byrne.

This video is the account made by images of the moment I understand theses words of Nietzsche. I was shooting in a slaughter-house, featuring the muslim rituel. It was hard and natural, it was complexed to understand but in the same time I try to understand this I began to understand me. And by the strength of random, I fell on a little village, near the slaughter-house whose name is mine.

as a basis for this video were the last remainders of a human which died lonely; a box with photos of a woman out of her life.

sadescription Projet Jaune Cadmium
35mn   color   stereo   2002   France
by Luc Vancheri & Sandrik Dmitrieff
It's based on the idea of, on one hand, reading the flashing epiphanies of commercials as a possibility or a beginning to an history of the human body and movies forms. And on the other hand, reconsidering the ability of cinematographic pictures to describe, analyse, and develop theories on the reality and themselves.

10mn42   color   stereo   2003   USA
by Kara Hearn
Using the rowdy public structure of a Carnival Side Show, this video tells the story of a seemingly simple and private journey. As we visit one attraction after another the lines begin to blur between personal and performative, ordinary and extraordinary, allowing the space and support for reflection, courage, healing and beauty in a time of public and private fear and tension.

sadescription Speculum
2mn57   color   stereo   2002   France
by Céline Clottes
Latin root of "mirror","feminity",border of inside\outside; draws also a surgical instrument who permits to move apart flesh. Reflexion to the sense of self-filming,like a superficial pursuit of identity, a pursuit who is coupled with an erotic exposition of being. The central and omnipresent presence of the eye fixingthe lens of camera symbolizes this impermeable exposition,this invitation with a transparent but closed door. That's a reference of the short story "the story of the eye" by Bataille.

sadescription The Griffith Circle : Hide & Seek
4mn   b/w   mono   2002   China
by Yuk-Yiu IP
Recycling a scene from a D.W. Griffith short, "The Griffith Circle" explores the enigma of the cinematic space perpetuated by the so-called continuity system that has dominated film pratices for over century. It turns a simple and often neglected act of screen direction into a playful meditation on spatial construction and a symbolic game of cinematic "hide and seek".
