AgX is pleased to welcome the French filmmaking collective le Ratoire for a program of films including "Asphalt Splendor", an appoximately 30-minute work-in-progress shot during a recent canoe trip down the Hudson River and wholly processed using locally-sourced plant materials.

Le Ratoire is a filmmaking collective composed of Léa Lanoë, Pierre Borel (of Labo l'Argent, Marseille, France), Katherine Bauer, Joyce Lainé, and Loïc Verdillon (of Atelier MTK, Grenoble, France). The name “le Ratoire” refers to the French verb, "rater", meaning “to miss, fail, or flunk” and "laboratoire", indicating the handmade, experimental approach taken in the production of each film. Since 2019, they have elaborated a methodology for collective filmmaking wherein each film is defined by a particular set of parameters, being both technical and, especially, situational. Sometimes referring to their practice as “action-filming”, the members of le Ratoire convene to realize all stages of the film without pause: from filming, to processing, printing, and producing the final edit. 

Saturday, October 14, 2023 | Doors open at 7:00PM - Screening at 7:30PM.
AgX Film Collective – 144 Moody St. Building 18, Waltham, MA 02453 (map)
Approx. runtime: 90 mins.
This event is free with a suggested $5-15 donation

Joyce Lainé, Katherine Bauer, and Loïc Verdillon will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion.
