Daïchi Saïto’s films are the product of artisan work and a manual development of the photochemical image, with a view to creating a vital experience in which the spectator imagines other perceptive, interior worlds. Saïto studied literature and philosophy in the United States, and Hindi and Sanskrit in India, and now lives and works in Montreal, where he cofounded the Double Negative collective. His films are research that is open to the unexpected in the form of light, colour and forms, that break free of literary language and words to venture into the sensorial, marked by a musicality—sometimes with the collaboration of US composer and violinist Malcolm Goldstein—in which “the rhythm is completely determined by the pulsation of light”. This session presents a significant part of his work done between 2003 and 2015.
