UNCANNY VALLEY

Paul Wenninger

16:9 I Colour  I 13 min I 2015 I DCP I HD

In UNCANNY VALLEY, we are at once bombarded by the psychological and physical intensity of a battle fought between desperate soldiers during the first world war. Each frame of this animated live action piece reveals its own painful yet detailed history.

The numbing futility of war, the agony of conflict and survival, the discovery of brotherhood, and madness of it all. UNCANNY VALLEY is a hypnotic nightmare, a revelation that at first glance is impossible to forget.

THE KISS FROM MARSEILLE

Valérie Mitteaux

16:9 I Colour  I 52 min I 2014 I DCP I HD I FR/EN/DE

Shocking picture. In Marseille, in 2012, Julia and Auriane, two young students, stand up to anti-gay marriage and adoption protesters, and offer a snapshot which soon became a reference in terms of anti-discrimination civic action. Opposite them, homophobia which pretends not to be one, taking advantage of the equal right movement to parade shamelessly. Between progressive bill and new homophobia, we delve into an image that bears witness of the state of the relationship between France and homosexuality.

NAOSHIMA (dream on the tongue)

Claire Laborey

16:9 I Colour I 52/67 min I 2015 I DCP I VOSTFR, VOSTFREN

NAOSHIMA (dream on the tongue) is a journey across a small Japanese island in the Seto inland sea. Since the 90s, it is threatened by exodus, its population decreases and ages, its industry declines.

As a result of a stunning contemporary art sponsoring project, Naoshima is changing. The pure timeless lines of the three museums designed by Tadao Ando, the contemporary artworks on site blend into the landscape, scattered along its shores, in the shadow of the forest.The presence of art is worrying, fascinating, inspiring, upsetting and becomes the beating heart of the island. Through the account of a dream or a memory, an island appears where the presence of art arises from a primitive nature and resonates with the frail permanence of traditions and daily rituals. It unsettles the representations of the locals and confronts them with this haunting question: what is beauty?

Alexander Schellow

After decades of dictatorship, Albania is at a turning point in its history. Yet, in the collective imagination, “Albania does not exist”. Facing this lack of images, Alexander Schellow uses his technique of memory reconstruction through drawing, and explores various approaches: live action shooting, interviews, satellite images, voice over… And calls into question the criteria a civil society is grounded on, just when it is coming into existence.
