ANALOGUE FUTURES: Emmanuel Lefrant

ANALOGUE FUTURES es un programa que ha preparado Crater-Lab en colaboración con Light Cone, y la participación del Cine-Cooperativa Zumzeig, donde programaremos algunas de sus sesiones de cine experimental y analógico.

Este programa es una carta blanca ofrecida a Emmanuel Lefrant, cineasta y director de la cooperativa parisina Light Cone, una colección de 4000 películas experimentales.

Lefrant vive y trabaja en París, donde crea obras en celuloide auto-producidas. Para este programa ha invitado a varios amigos con los que ha trabajado en el pasado, y con quien comparte el mismo interés por las materialidad de la película y la fe en el poder del medio analógico.

La sesión será presentada el propio cineasta.

PROGRAMA

—————

BLITZ
by Emmanuel LEFRANT

2006 / 16 mm / color / son / 24 ips / 6′ 00
This is a deserted black space that one tries to fill in. To the point of becoming totally submerged in color. One explores the chromatic circle, by turning around it meticulously. And by vertical unreeling, a process specific to cinema. BLITZ turns a page opened two years ago in Canada. I started to work on line patterns with the collective PHYLM, for a performance, and then for an installation. Once back in France, I re-explored this figure with the nominoë collective, and the performance LI[GHT]NES.

PARTIES VISIBLE ET INVISIBLE D’UN ENSEMBLE SOUS TENSION
by Emmanuel LEFRANT

2009 / 35 mm / color / son / 24 ips / 7′ 00
Africa, 2003: the mechanisms of memory.I shot the image of a landscape and buried simultaneously a film strip in the same place where the sequence was shot: the emulsion, the victim of erosion is thus subjected to biochemical degradation. The result of these natural processes of decay are then conserved in the state of their dissolution. Those two images, and their negative versions, are then entangled together thanks to double exposure and bi-packing techniques.These landscapes in fusion, it’s the logic of a world that reveals itself. A bipolar world, where invisible takes shape with the visible, where the first dissolves itself into the second and vice versa.image

KAIROS
by CANAPA Stefano & RIBES Elisa

2016 / 35 mm / b&w / son / 24 ips / 11′ 15
Kairos is a poetic dance film set against a Mediterranean background. Film, nature and the body are brought together to produce an interconnected material choreography. Kairos talks about the loss of the myth of Mermaids while also evoquing the odyssey of the today’s migrants, between exil and resistance. For the Greeks, Kairos signifies the point where everything can happen, that point you can choose to do something or not…image

PROJECTOR OBSCURA
by Peter MILLER

2005 / 35 mm / color / sil / 24 ips / 10′ 00
A portrait of seven screens as recorded by their projectors. Projector Obscura is a series of films that are exposed using projectors rather than cameras. The extreme similarity between the design of the motion picture camera and projector is such that if the projection booth is adequately darkened and unexposed film is run through a projector, light illuminating the theater will enter the projector lens and expose the film.35mm film projectors used this way will record the objects and space before them, exposing the relationship between two fixed elements in the cinema: the projector and the screen. In “Projector Obscura”, the lens, which is normally responsible for casting out so many images, is given a chance to take in light and reflect upon its theatrical space, and the screen is given a chance to stand bare.The theaters shown here are the Biograph, the Gene Siskel Film Center, Anthology Film Archives, Gateway, MFA-Boston, Coolidge Corner and Harvard Film Archive.
