DON'T KILL HOLLYWOOD



[ 12 vidéos of Image Contre Nature - 74mn ]
at the Festival Tous Courts
École Supérieure d’Art / rue Emile Tavan / Aix-en-Provence
December 3rd, 2004, 20h30

A retrospective of 12 videos covering four years of the festival. The pleasure of seeing again, finding inspiration this time, in the themes developed in each of these films. In contrast to the titles used to mark the different selection programmes, of the abstract character attests only to the necessity of assembling the films in a coherent fashion, Don’t kill Hollywood is the fruit of a play on association. The memoir of two readings, James Ellroy and Cormac McCarthy, are grafted onto the choice of images and their sequence. The bodies are, one after the other, penetrated, killed, betrayed, dead: or engaged in the repetition of movement and the image. They are often feminine. We don’t cut.

sadescription Par delà le bien et le mal
8mn10   color   stereo   2002   France
by Suzel Roche
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.

sadescription Sans titre
3mn30   b/w   stereo   2004   France
by Céline Clottes
This video Installation designed to ravel in loop, tries to expose a time which passes. The aesthetic simplicity of the image, the tiny action are there as well as possible to expose time in its unfolding more believed. Here it is the daily newspaper which is let see. The loop made up of 112 numerical photographs, represents somebody who passes from the position upright, of a half-turn then of one return to the position lying. Horizontal representation of a time dial, one day standard in its destitution...

sadescription Two or three things I know about Ohio
2mn16   color   mono   2002   USA
by Dan Boord & Luis Valdovino
"Two or three things I know about Ohio" is a charming parody of travel documentary and a quick funny American satire that pays homage to this Great Lakes state. Ohio is known for many things: the Amish, 19th Century farms, humidity, and small towns. Other little knows attractions include an annual parade of twins from all over the world, a live bait dispenser machine that competes with Pepsi for your dollar, the Longaberger Company World Headquaters...

sadescription Missing marion
2mn   b/w   mono   2003   China
by Yuk-Yiu IP
"Missing Marion" is an imaginary murder of the cinematic presence by its synthetic double. By removing the caracter from Hichcock’s all-too-memorable "shower scene", the figure is eclipsed by its own shadow generated by digital algorithms. The interplay between absence and presence turns this shower into something at once familiar and foreign, quiet and deadly.

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.
