Done with Filming is the title of a film made by Maurice Lemaître between 1985 – 1990. It is composed of a collection of slides, primarily from New Wave films, on which the artist has intervened in multiple ways: with touch-ups, smudges, and graphic and visual interventions. Simultaneously, the soundtrack consists of a fake journalistic-style interview in which Lemaître, in his characteristic manner that is both serious and humorous, gives an account of his relationship with cinema, criticism, and creation.

The book imitates the format of the film, in a printed version. The text of the bilingual sound-track (English-French) winds its way throughout the approximately 200 images. The book showcases the visual power of Lemaître, with his détournements of images, who is undeniably one of the most talented of the Lettrist generation. In the interview, Lemaître poses the question of cinema’s imminent end, while also passing the torch to future generations.
