CINETRACTS (SPRING, WINTER, SUMMER)

HD video
75 minutes
2012-19

This project was initially conceived in 2012 for a commission from Random Act, a TV program on UK’s Channel 4. These series of 2 minute films were made to be inserted into the flux of public programs, to operate in-between them. Their title is in reference to the anonymous agit-prop films made during May ’68 revolution in France. The Cinetracts are political pamphlets/leaflets in cinematographic form.

The Cinetracts in this series are a collection of sequences gathered from film archives, TV or the internet. Some have been modified, others haven’t. Some were made in response to the actual political events while others are templates for future film ideas. Most sequences were the occasion for an experiment with sound and editing in order to explore new cinematographic strategies.
