Marseille #01-#30

director: Alexander Schellow
30×20 seconds | Germany, France

With these 30 spots made in 2011 as part of a carte blanche, Alexander Schellow keeps on working on the remembering process through drawings and animation, this time based on scenes he observed in Marseille. Made up of 3-second animations looped and interrupted by black screens, the spots appear and disappear before we can really grasp them, as if they were memories subconsciously entering our perception.
