Sink or Swim is a sophisticated poetic ode addressed by Su Friedrich to his father, a linguist who left his family when the filmmaker was a child. Raymonde Carasco formally revisits the myth of Gradiva, causing the pathological symptoms to migrate (in response to Freud's study of the text of the writer Jensen) towards plastic variations in which thought becomes form. Two dissymmetrical approaches of the "essayist cinema" under the sign of the questioning of the fathers (direct for Su Friedrich, linked to the archetypes in Raymonde Carasco).
This 10th edition of Mex-Parismental is an opportunity to sublimate the course that helped forge the unique and strong identity of our event. Organized for creators whose most varied achievements are offered unrestrained to curious spectators, eager for new images with refreshing perspectives, stories of today, the revisited past, renewed themes, unseens universes.
¡Vamos! Mex-Parismental and Collectif Jeune Cinema have an appointment with you next Thursday, June 18 at the Cinema La CLef to watch this cinematographic creation and to let it go, be surprised, take on unmarked trails with us to watch, share, meet, go towards the unknown, stimulating and invigorating.
For his regular screenings, the Collectif Jeune Cinéma organises a one hour programme devoted to recent Korean experimental films (2013). The films have been made inside the Space Cell laboratory. The screening is programmed and introduced by Pip Chodorov (filmmaker, director of Re:Voir editions).
The lab was founded in 2004. It’s a small hand-made film lab, but first attempt in Korea. We have darkroom for hand processing, optical printer, steenbeck, bolexes and almost all kind of 16 or super 8mm equipment. (Jangwook Lee, director)
