The Relationship between the « Films Sans qualité » and those four films, can be found in the sparing of means that they claim, and in the way they transform triviality. The ordinary desorder, from birth to stake, discuss with eternity, as well as at this time between wakefulness and sleep : facts and inconcevable are mixed together by fragments.



Roma 07 by Vanessa Santullo
4’50, vidéo mini DV, color, stereo, 2007, France
Roma 07 is composed of accumulated fragments filmed on city streets. The film reflects and refracts the archetypal Italian: attitudes, postures, intonations, such are the details that compose this rhetoric of gestures in which ostentatious objects such as the cellphone play a dominant role.
L’éveil d’Abbadon by Luc Pedretti
2’, super 8, color, mono, 2009, France
Abbadon, prince of abysses wakes up and brings down on us our own fears. Hostile devil, he tightens his hands on our lungs preventing any breath. Premature birth, relief of a nightmare still knocking as ropes which cut through the flesh. Abbadon in our awakenings has to achieve his acts of destruction, necessary for a balance of life.
Experienced Leonardo Da Vinci by Aynil Pij & Antonella Porcelluzzi
29’, vidéo mini DV, color, mono, 2005, France
Year 1517: while he follows only the only experience, that is the reality observed directly in the nature and not its interpretations, Leonardo da Vinci is condemned for heresy. It is thus to escape the sure death on the stake that he hurries to run away in France, accepting the hospitality of François 1st.
Interdit Sauf Cérémonie by Roselyne Frick M
14’07, vidéo mini DV, color, mono, 2009, France
Travelling, Opened church, Come and see, Forbids except ceremony, Sergeant of the Christ, Apaiseur, Protect us, What's new?.. Hallucination.

Circuit-Court
Since 1992, Circuit-Court has created a found of hundreds of artist films, shot in Super 8, in 16mm, in vidéo. At the beginning were the « Films Sans Qualité » : films « without quality » means that they glorify ephemeral and unfinished shapes, they cock a snook at academism, under eclectic shapes, going from collective films to self filming. The collection can be consulted on Circuit-Court’s internet site, and in the «vidéo on demand » space, that Circuit-Court has opened newly in Marseille.

Square Invaders by Xavier AMELLER
France –2009 – 7min.30s
A black and white geometric invasion spreads and covers the space in an industrial ritornello and synthetic songs background. They are there and we must find a way to communicate with them. Anthropomorphic approach to a process of overcrowding and exhaustion of space, made with reference to archetypes of science fiction and video games, the film delivers an ultra-rational and synthetic vision of the world.

HIPOLOGY by Julien AMEZ
France – 2008 – 4min10

MAPPING JOURNEY #1 et #2 by Bouchra KHALILI
France – 2008 – 7min30
Mapping Journey in an ongoing project initiated in 2008.

Thanks to this frontal connection, another map appears, a map created by the trip trial and the inevitable detours.
