Martine Rousset makes since 1977 an independent cinema that questions the relationship between the cinematic image and writing, she experiments with the text-image alliances; filming the track, she works the figure of the print and explores the meeting point where the significance of the absence touches the absolute presence.
She will present tonight her latest feature film, the result of eight years of work, based on the unfinished writing by Julian Gracq, "la route", written in 1970.
the unfinished writing by Julian Gracq, 'la route' written in 1970, a seaside forest,
the enigma of a trajectory,
by this writing in this landscape, and the landscape in this writing,
she digs, against the current, from a double echo to the same root,
deep, invisible, of an absolute presence,
a fire of stones,
text and landscape are then antlers of the same language
