“Déploiements” is about state control on both the physical and the symbolic level. The video draws a parallel between two types of simulation: a team of fighter pilots mentally preparing for an air show, and a piece of software simulating a crowd of protesters.

The protagonist is a reclusive, introspective Ukranian – the Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector (1920-1977). The film is based on her single TV interview, broadcast only after her death. What she says in it is still very pertinent and corresponds to the feeling of ‘in-betweenness’, which I myself feel today.

Mudanza Contemporánea

Spain 2018, 19’40”

Armchairs, feet, mattresses, mops, arms, memories, tubes, plastic. A whole army of objects dance and twist in this particular traveling choreography. A man tries to overcome a ghost from the past, a wonderful, terrible and impossible to forget ghost.

Have you ever watched a movie where each character is merely your brain’s creation? Do you think it is impossible? If you do, just engage your imagination and look closer. Or, even better, listen. You will not only have to watch the story but also make it up along with all the characters just as the plot develops. Make your own unique storyline. You still don’t believe this is possible? If you don’t, then simply turn on the movie. Oh, but don’t forget to give it a title.

director of photography: Qigemu
UK 2017, 14’02”

Film follows two people in their process of reality-curation as they create their own spaces against and via understandings of distance, as they go through the motions of growing themselves by growing their universes.

director: Frank Ternier
director of photography: Frank Ternier
music: Frédéric Duzan
France 2017, 13’

A young black man is killed in an altercation with a vigilant neighbour and the police. An indignant crowd gathers. The sense of injustice is high. A group isolates itself. Emotions threaten riot… In the absence of words, can the body take its revenge?
