Washington D.C. Premiere
MAGNETIC CINEMA (France, 2008, 33 min.)
Washington, D.C. Premiere Inspired by Lugares Comunes and by Canadian choreographer Benoît Lachambre, the film touches on the supernatural sphere. The interplay of multiple energies links the film’s characters to the natural elements—air, water, plant and mineral—leading to strange, instinctual body movements. These characters have an android double, haunted by another, non-human will. They move about in a magnetic space where corporal language replaces verbal. Cinema—as the art of suggestion, the art of dark, obsessive forces—attests to the cyclical nature of existence. Thus do waves live… Directed by Pierre Coulibeuf.
