 We would first of all like to hail the name of Marcel Hanoun. It was he who wrote that “the strength of an image is to interrupt”; on September 22nd, his own life took the path of this force. From now on, we are with him but without him, deprived of his precise politeness, with his mildly peremptory accent, with his regal bearing despite his final suffering, with his excitement faithful to his mission that was belied by his steady gaze, without him but with all his films, with his writings, with the memory of a tenacity forged by obstacles. They were many, but his films numbered even more.
This summer, we showed his last: Cello. This title, which alludes of course to music, also suggests the diminutive of his given name. Because this final work mingles different chords, with an ambition that is all the more heightened by its minuscule means. One of which is the story of the making of the film-in-progress, in editing and sound, an autobiographical manner, portraits of the actors, of the technical crew, the recording of reading, of painting, of music, and still other challenges.
What is decisive here is definitely the gamble of a self-portrait made in editing, in another words manufactured from all the heterogeneous elements, and left as such, that Marcel alias Cello has created. Everything, then, except a “self”-portrait, everything except himself. It is undoubtedly this “except himself” that makes this testamentary work, and in the end offers us a puzzle to solve. More than memories or fame, indeed the contrary of a hoarding tendency, Cello celebrates the cinema, but heard outside of itself, almost furious, as if escaped from view, showing the possibility of residing there where there is only a place to articulate things between themselves.
Listening to this chamber music that is both solemn and cheerful, austere and generous, slow and impulsive, we learn from the knowledge that Marcel Hanoun has so amply bequeathed to us, and we can rejoice about this announcement, the Cello’s bass carries on.

VideoFID

       
 

 

As part of the VideoFID evenings, FIDMarseille is pleased to invite you to a screening of the film PÉNÉLOPE by Claire Doyon on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 8 p.m.; in French competition, winner of the Renaud Victor Prize, PÉNÉLOPE was screened at FID 2012 in its world premiere.


 

Mother of an autistic little girl, director Claire Doyon decides to try and find a way to make her child feel better by undertaking a long journey. Together they travel to the deepest corners of Mongolian Siberia, searching for a shaman with healing powers. From Paris to the Great Steppe, obviously, there is quite a difference in setting. In this western-like epic, the city which only emphasised the child’s suffocating feeling gives way to a huge space in which her movements, although still signs of pain, or apnoea, suddenly take another dimension. With her arms and head lifted up to the sky, her fragile figure slowly seems to blend in the vastness of the bare landscape. Of course, the archaic rituals to which an impressed Pénélope is submitted offer no guarantee of efficiency, and the parents are well aware of that. But they mostly take the trip as a way to try and displace the pain, physically and geographically, to outstrip it and drown it in an unfamiliar culture. Therefore, in this portrait of her daughter, Claire Doyon’s images never settle anywhere, they never merely observe – they rather reveal themselves wholeheartedly, as images made out of love, surrender, showing a slight lack of balance which lets the wind of faith shake them in gusts.
