VideoFID

       
 


  As part of the VideoFID evenings, FIDMarseille is pleased to invite you on Tuesday 27 of March to the screening of Elise Florenty’s films GENNARIELLO DUE VOLTE by Elise Florenty selected in French Competition and presented for its World Premiere at FID 2009 and HOLY TIME IN ETERNITY, HOLY ETERNITY IN TIME directed by Elise Florenty and Marcel Türkowsky, selected in French Competition and presented for its World Premiere at FID 2011.

Gennariello due volte
Élise Florenty’s project originates in a text by Pier Paolo Pasolini. As we all know, Pasolini was very much in tune with the world around him; in 1975, he published in the daily Corriere della Sera a series of letters to some imaginary reader, a 15 year-old Neapolitan teenager he called Gennariello, as an address to the future. Put together under the title Lutheran Letters – Educational Pamphlet, these often scathing texts are an introductory course to rebellion that tackles in turn family, school, the media, religion or politics.
Today’s film deals with today’s Naples: young boys are playing in a waste ground, a high school is occupied, fragments of the city are shown alternatively. Gestures, bodies, places, and a voice to connect them all: Gennariello’s voice, here and now, like a living echo to the voice that remained silent through the fake correspondence. This actual voice is to be heard, but set back off screen. Today, Gennariello would be as old as Pasolini was when he wrote the texts. Roles are reversed, and Gennariello, due volte provides the opportunity of a retrospective exchange. This response is often critical and invites us to decipher the present through the lens of these past letters, like a reversed process: what do they tell us about the present, about the commitments to honour, about the pitfalls, failures, utopias? How is this Naples that Pasolini imagined? How can one depict today’s adolescence, this in-between time? How can one film it?
By coming back to some places filmed by Pasolini, or by evoking some sequences, as a tribute or an updating, Gennariello, due volte chooses to uphold this suspension, this dual time. The film is punctuated with sequences that go the other way around, creating ghostly mutant bodies and placing us in a time span at once paradoxical and dialectic, retrospective and introspective..

Nicolas Féodoroff
Holy time in eternity, holy eternity in time
Ecran noir en prologue : une voix, celle d'un homme, se raconte. Le récit, d'abord individuel, s'amplifie, monte par digressions en un monologue embrassant dans son flot toute une mythologie centrée sur l'être-Noir, aujourd’hui, aux Etats-Unis. Les mots entrent en un dialogue, alternant, schizophrène, du « tu » écrit en carton sur l’écran au « je » énoncé par la voix en off. Elise Florenty, dont on se souvient du beau Gennariello Due Volte (compétition FID 2009), est accompagnée cette fois d’un nouveau complice, Marcel Türkowsky. Tous deux rendent explicite dans ce début de film leur projet : de soi à l'autre, il s'agira de passages et d'échanges, de porosités entre la parole et l'écoute, les figures et les lieux. Deuxième séquence. Nous sommes quelque part dans un Sud nourri de Faulkner, non loin des contrées du comté imaginaire de Yoknapatawpha, où se déroulent la plupart de ses romans. Il serait vain de tenter de restituer un quelconque récit ici. Le film nous emporte dans un flux de sensations charnelles, de paysages étranges et les séquences s'emboîtent les unes aux autres, distribuant apparitions et disparition selon un mode organique, en un fondu perpétuel. Toutes les images, tous les sons se révèlent hantés, par l'histoire, par la nature, par la littérature aussi. C’est la fabrique d’une fluidité où imaginaire et réel n'ont pas lieu d'être distingués, en vue d’une ode au monde comme l'indique le titre, emprunté au poème
Footnote To Howl d'Allen Ginsberg.
