New film by Jean Jacques Martinod
2021 | Super 16mm to Digital | colour & b&w | 17 mins
Animated with a curiosity for new knowledge, Matthew Wolkow creates a cinema revealing the persons he meets and the stories that come along. Situated between essay and experimentation, rubbing the real, the imaginary, speech, words and sensorialities, his work beneficiates from this hybridity where form is approached as a resolution. In October 2021, the Cinémathèque québécoise screened his first retrospective.
Jean-Jacques Martinod is a filmmaker, transmedia artist, curator, educator and radio DJ. His works study locales as deterritorialized landscapes in a practice that considers the interrelations inherent in fluctuating psychic geographies and expanded human experience. Utilizing certain traditions within documentary practice and experimental media, his works endeavor to interrogate sensory cognition in relation to the natural world and potential mythopoetic structures. His work has screened in museums, galleries, film festivals and independent artist-led spaces including The Museum of the Moving Image, Cinemateca do MAM Rio de Janeiro, Centre PHI, IFFR, Sheffield Doc/Fest, FIDMarseille, Mar del Plata, European Media Arts Festival, 25FPS, Images Festival, Frontera Sur, Camden International Film Festival, Fracto, Experiments in Cinema, among many others.
