CinemaScope Trilogy

Fortnight 2002, Short film,

Synopsis

L’Arrivée 1998 / 3 min / 35 mm scope / n&b / stéréo A white screen. Tabula rasa. Panavision. L’Arrivée shines on you like pure projected light, like the white surface still waiting for the marks of the filmmaker. In L’Arrivée, Peter Tscherkassky goes back to the beginning, back to lumière and the Lumière who, once upon a time, made a film of a train arriving. Outer Space 1999 / 10 mn / 35 mm scope / n&b / stéréo A premonition of a horror film, lurking danger : a house – at night, slightly tilted in the camera’s view, eerily lit – surfaces from the pitch black, then sinks back into it again. Found footage from Hollywood forms the basis of the film. The figure who creeps through the images, who is thrown around by them and who attacks them, is Barbara Hershey. Dream Work 2001 / 11mn / 35 mm scope / n&b / dolby SR musique : Kiawasch Saheb Nassagh A woman goes to bed, falls asleep, and begins to dream. This dream takes her to a landscape of light and shadow, evoked in a form only possible through classic cinematography.
