The works of US filmmakers Stan Brakhage, Leighton Pierce and Robert Todd presented in this session interweave the cinematographic gaze with childhood and matter. The eye of the camera, like the tactile retinas of children, seems to be transformed into an extension of the skin that reaches out to touch the sensitive surface of objects to discover their forms. Films in which light reveals to us a world of textures, reliefs and distances. [Screening in 16 mm]
