To mark the acquisition of several short films by Maria Klonaris and Katerina Thomadaki into its catalogue, Light Cone presents a special screening of the duo's first feature film, Double Labyrinthe (1976), accompanied by two rarely-seen short films. This mythical film, the cinematographic debut of Klonaris/Thomadaki in France, was screened for the first time in May 1976 at the University of Paris I, in the presence of Michel Journiac and Dominique Noguez.
To mark the publication of Agir le cinéma - Écrits sur le cinéma expérimental (1979-2020) [Empower Cinema - Writings on Experimental Cinema (1979-2020)], the most complete anthology to date of the writings of yann beauvais, Light Cone presents a double screening that places side by side his work as a filmmaker with his work as a film critic and programmer.
For the release of issue No. 2 of the magazine Les saisons, une part discrète du film, we are organizing a 16 mm screening of a series of films (2007-2011) by João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva and of Event for a Stage (2014) by Tacita Dean - artists and filmmakers that we publish in this issue alongside Deborah Stratman, Lav Diaz, Mauricio Freyre and Margaret Tait.

"Barbara Hammer paints a colorful portrait of the American poet Elizabeth Bishop, from her childhood to her death in 1979. Bishop described herself as “timorously kicking around the coastlines of the world,” and the film is loosely organized around her stays in Nova Scotia, Key West, Brazil, and Cambridge—the homes she made for herself and the lovers she took. Never “out” as a lesbian—the concept would have been foreign to the writer who graduated from Vassar in the thirties—Bishop nonetheless actively pursued women, from her first summer-camp crush to her last affair. Hammer examines Bishop from all angles, interviewing everyone from literary luminaries like Marie-Claire Blais and Edmund White to Lota’s aged former maid. Hammer pulls the viewer into Bishop’s world, blending present day footage of each location with archival photos, and recreating moments in the writer’s life."

Collectif Jeune Cinéma joins the Festival du film de Fesses and Festival Loud and Proud to present two new selections of short films from What's Your Flavor?, a call for experimental films dedicated to queer culture and launched in early 2015 by five programmers. Xpanded Bodies is a programme of films addressing sexuality from contemporary issues incarnated in poetic, political, erotic-pornographic proposals... Each of them is a new invitation to explore the body in the digital era.
