DVD gathering 16 films by Vivian Ostrovsky made between 1982 and 2014.
"An intimate – yet humorous – act of cultural resistance, the cinema of Vivian Ostrovsky is a gesture, implying the filmmaker’s entire body – as she travels around the world, carrying the gear, framing with a camera-eye. She digs in archival footage for an immense repertory of cinematic gestures performed by others – and playfully edits them with her own Super-8 shots. Multi-culturalism and polyglotism are woven into this poetics of displacement."

These inspirations are restructured through image-making, editing and voice performances to create original works of striking intensity and emotional force.

Il s'agit de l'étude la plus complète à ce jour des relations entre peinture et cinéma dans les années 1920. Des artistes et poètes (Duchamp, Man Ray, Picabia, Malévitch, Léger, Artaud, Moholy-Nagy, Ruttmann, Desnos...) font du cinéma un chantier d'expériences. Le cinéma se fait ainsi cubiste, dadaïste, abstrait, constructiviste, surréaliste... Les notions d'avant-garde, d'expérience et d'expérimentation se trouvent donc revisitées.
