Autrement, la Molussie
Voyage en Molussie, État fasciste imaginaire. Des détenus se transmettent des histoires sur le monde extérieur, comme autant de fables philosophiques racontées sur fond de paysages plus ou moins urbanisés, plus ou moins industrialisés.
Un film en neuf chapitres basés sur des fragments du roman Die molussische Katakombe, écrit entre 1932 et 1936 par Günther Stern dit Anders (« Autrement »). Des images tournées en 16 mm avec des pellicules périmées dont le cinéaste a développé et effectué lui-même les tirages.
Un film en neuf bobines dont la combinaison est tirée au sort par le projectionniste – parfois par Nicolas Rey lui-même – soit 362.880 possibilités différentes de le visionner. De bout en bout, un travail d’expérimentation absolue. Read More »

Remember childhood holidays frolicking in the countryside? When time is gone, or when grown-ups are gone, will there be no more rolling meadows with fields of poppies, trees to climb and hide in or playful butterflies? What is this secret life all about? At the center of the film, made by the directors of Microcosmos, is a pond, where two lonely children are silently prowling around this small kingdom, seeing, dreaming and playing. Through cameras and microscopes, the filmmakers depict their passion for nature by closely observing plant and animal life and then adding a charming story with human characters. Subtle sound effects and music add a dramatic dimension to their humorous and fantastic observations which are sure to stimulate the imagination of young and old. Read More »

With this eleventh Glimpse Roy Stuart is at the top of his art as he ushers in a new decade with a sublime two and a half hours of pure sensuality.

Under the watchful eye of his magic camera, emenating from a diabolical edit, over a dozen lovely, totally natural creatures share with us their most intimate pleasures. Read More »
