16+- (Chofuku-Ki)

Fortnight 1975, Short film, 11 mn


Si, sur l’objectif d’un projecteur, était collé un papillon, est-ce que cela empêcherait la projection d’un film ?
Au cinéma, les spectateurs ne peuvent-ils pas entrer dans l’écran ? Le film doit-il rester immuable et extérieur ? Ne peut-il pas « devenir » un spectacle plus ouvert, susceptible de se prêter à une communication directe avec le public ?
Si l’on ajoute une image sur la pellicule 16mm, le film devient 16+1. Or, cet élément nouveau cache l’image déjà existante… Donc 16+-1.
