New Visions

We propose to discuss borders and limits with films from different times that question the contemporary nature of cinema. Our invited directors are Ghassan Salhab and Sofia Bohdanowicz. We present a tribute to Barbara Hammer by some of her closest friends, and the latest films by Alain Cavalier and James Benning. Aside from theme programmes, there are unique films by young directors: Demons, by Daniel Hui, This Film Is About Me, by Alexis Delgado Búrdalo, or the splendid When the Persimmons Grew, by Hilal Baydarov. Rita Azevedo Gomes and Pierre Léon partner up and bring us Danses macabres, squelettes et autres fantaisies. We also summon the voice of Antonin Artaud from his radio performance in 1947.
