For the release of issue No. 2 of the magazine Les saisons, une part discrète du film, we are organizing a 16 mm screening of a series of films (2007-2011) by João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva and of Event for a Stage (2014) by Tacita Dean - artists and filmmakers that we publish in this issue alongside Deborah Stratman, Lav Diaz, Mauricio Freyre and Margaret Tait.

In this issue 2, we publish an original text by the Portuguese artists João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva - a micro-literature essay composed of a collection of visions, real and imaginary descriptions of their plastic and film works. Les saisons also publishes the text "Event for a Stage" written by Tacita Dean. The text explores in the multiplicity of its form the intricacies of writing a script, a performance, a film in the making.
