VideoFID

    
 

 As part of the VideoFID evenings, FIDMarseille is happy to invite you on December 15, 2011 at 8 p.m. on its premises, with the director present, to a screening of the film ROAD MOVIE by Christophe Bisson, in French Competition, screened in its world premiere at FID 2011. Two shorts by Christophe Bisson will also be screened as part of the programme.

ATTENTION! THE VIDEOFID EVENINGS FOR THE MONTHS OF DECEMBER 2011 AND JANUARY 2012 WILL BE HELD, EXCEPTIONALLY, ON THURSDAYS.


Entrance Fee 4 €. Reservations are recommended. Drinks included.

The title promises open spaces, the open road, a grandiose trip but the first thing the film bumps into are the white walls of a psychiatric institution. This does not stop Christophe Bisson rising to the challenge of the film’s title. How? By connecting faces and how they silently reveal the desire to make a great escape. How? By filming with a patience that lends itself to the truly sober contemplation of the landscapes of the patients. By gently capturing their postures and the particular quality of their presence, whilst accompanying them during their basic activities: looking, listening, standing, thinking in silence, as they begin to utter a handful of words, walk along a riverbank, paint, find the infinity of a colour, etc. This is a far cry from the pitiful spectacle of madness and is closer in its concise intensity to a short play by Beckett. Bisson manages in a few short sequences to capture this insistent, secretive presence, just as they do, be it in front of a mirror or a blank sheet of paper, seeking to find a possible representation somewhere between external surfaces and bottomless depths.
