 First, on behalf of the entire staff of the FIDMarseille, I would like present to all our readers our very best wishes for this New Year. 2012 ended effectively on a high note, with the theatrical release in France of Miguel Gomes’ stunning film, Tabu, with which, you may recall, we opened our last season.
Internationally and unanimously praised by the press, the film very quickly won over a substantial audience, that it continues to attract, it’s still in the theatres at the start of 2013.* Proof, if that were needed, of the public’s taste and high standards. What’s up next in 2013? The question is legitimate, since as everyone knows, Marseille has entered into the year of its official consecration as the European cultural capital. And then what? First of all, and as in every year, faithful to the city’s vocation as a harbor, we are happy that the films discovered here pursue their itinerary, elsewhere in France, theatrically or released on DVD, but also abroad, in ambitious, European demonstrations: the Berlinale, Rotterdam, etc. And still further afield, as you can read in detail below, in New York, Tokyo, etc.
In addition, we rejoice in the new invitation extended by the Institut Supérieur des Arts de Toulouse. In partnership with the Cinémathèque de Toulouse and the first-rate cinema, The Cratère, ISDAT has invited the FIDMarseille for three days of programming at the end of February, jam-packed with 30 films, entitled Crossing the Portrait. You will find there films from our last festival, others from slightly earlier years, as well as a few classics; a number of directors will be on hand for the event. As part of the exhibitions whose openings will be spaced out in the coming days and months, we have the pleasure to count the many artists who first discovered Marseille by their participation in the FID: Akram Zaatari, Kahlil Joreige and Joana Hadjithomas, Özlem Sulak, Jean-Luc Moulène, for example. Without forgetting those who have become Marseillais by adoption like Till Reskens, Stéphanie Nava and Caroline Duchatelet, or from birth, like Fouad Bouchoucha, whose path also crossed ours, and who will present their works during this year of celebration. We wish them again a hearty welcome; may their works find meaningful encounters with the anticipated visitors. Concerning our upcoming 24th edition, besides the surprises it holds in store, for us first of all since films and projects are coming in from all over the world (please consult our deadlines), a retrospective will be devoted to Pier Paolo Pasolini. A Mediterranean figure, certainly, since such is the orientation of Marseille, but also a personality of mythical importance. Poet, writer, playwright, critic, polemicist, screenwriter, actor, painter, filmmaker: some go so far as to call him a contemporary saint. The wager of this undertaking devoted to Pasolini remains largely before us. That is why, citing his own words, we have baptized this homage, “P.P.P., the scandalous force of the past.” Implemented in conjunction with three local organizations, Alphabetville, the CIPM and INA Région, the programming of his films, amplified by an exhibition, readings, round-tables, etc., will take place a month-and-a-half before the festival. A way of multiplying the possibilities to better embrace, in its integrality, his untimely oeuvre that is generous as well as dazzling. Impatient to welcome you in numbers during this year, with your films and your eyes, we reiterate to you our best wishes.
Jean-Pierre Rehm

* A book of interviews about the film and its shoot was recently published by the éditions Independencia: Au Pied du Mont Tabu. Miguel Gomes and some of his partners in this adventure answer at length Cyril Neyrat’s questions. It’s a must read for all aficionados, wherein we constantly learn and where we are amazed by the ways of grace.

CROISER LE PORTRAIT - INTERSECTING THE PORTRAIT

In partnership with ISDAT, Institut Supérieur des Arts de Toulouse, FIDMarseille, Festival International de Cinéma, invites you to three days of intense programming. When? From January 23 – 25. Where? In three places. In the School’s auditorium, first of all, for repeated screenings in the morning. At the Cinémathèque, on the 23rd, for three screenings. And last but not least, at Le Cratère cinema, on January 24 and 25, from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. The programme? Recent films as well as films never seen before, coming from all over the world: Austria, Lebanon, Thailand, Belgium, Germany, U.S.A., Spain, Chile, Mexico, Mali, Japan, South Africa, Cameroon, Switzerland, and also the La Borde Clinic, the Lyonnais and Parisian suburbs, etc. Without forgetting a few classic films by Otto Preminger, Guy Debord and Raoul Ruiz. The
ensemble mixes fiction films with documentary and artists’ films, brought together under the theme of: Intersecting the Portrait.
According to Baudelaire, there’s a novel behind every face, for those who know how to see. For the ins and outs of a scenario unwound ad infinitum, substitute concentration, that of a palette deliberately tightened to open towards told or imagined destinies, sung or whispered, thrust forward or mutist, manifest or secret. But if the exercise of the portrait offers a generic frame, it is far from guaranteeing a fixed identity. On the contrary. The surfaces glimmer, trouble is stirred up, and the outlines of faces are blurred and the crispness of the image is troubled. It will be, for example, a triple portrait of the U.S.A. Exposed in their southern stupor by the cult filmmaker Harmony Korine, city side and riverside by the artist
Elise Florenty. Where the dust of their splinters assembled in mosaic by Arnaud des Pallières. It will be the incredible African zoology of yesterday illuminated by
Marie Voigner and that of tomorrow by Neil Beloufa. It will be
Roland Barthes crossed with the music interpreted by the Flemish artist, Manon de Boer. The Japanese activist filmmaker Masao Adachi welcomed in his night by Philippe Grandrieux and in his suns by the super 8 of Éric Baudelaire. An abandoned hotel in Bangkok where Apichatpong Weerasethakul has invited ghosts to engage in pillow talk. The testimonies of Lebanese prisoners archived by Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige. But it will also be: Fukushima under the watchful of TEPCO, the moving of Garcia Lorca’s home in Grenada, the restoration of a picture by Duccio, Rosebud in Switzerland, Daniel Johnston a capella, a saxophonist suspended in the Berlin sky, the voice of Snow White, the autobiography of Sylvia Kristel, the winding paths of a dissolute trader, the music-loving residents of the Léone Richet home, from young Mexicans imitating the rituals of their drug-trafficking elders, the self-portrait on VHS of Simone Fattal. In short, it’s a matter above all of venturing on the roads of the world, and of exploring the possibilities of today’s art: cinema. All of the screenings will be introduced and followed by a q and q afterwards, with many of the directors on hand. We are delighted to share with you these discoveries at the outset of 2013. We warmly thank the Institut Supérieur des Arts de Toulouse, its director Yves Robert and its staff, for this special occasion, as well as its partners in distribution, la Cinémathèque de Toulouse and the Cratère cinema.

VideoFID

       
  As part of the VideoFid evenings, FIDMarseille is pleased to invite you on Tuesday, January 15 at 8 p.m. to a screening of LA NUIT REMUE by Bijan Anquetil, Grand Prix of the French Competition, screened in its world premiere at FID 2012. The screening will take at FIDMarseille, with the director on hand.
       
     On the screen, black melts into the obscurity of night, where voices rise up - the voices of young Afghan migrants somewhere on the edge of a Paris, more guessed at than real. Bijan Anquetil plunges us into their nocturnal world, into their night, which is very much a youthful one, full of vitality, lived in and active. For this night, far from being sleepy, is stirring things up, as the title borrrowed from Henri Michaux suggests, and will not let itself be tamed.
A night that we are led to understand is also poetic and metaphorical. A night of the unclassified, of those who are invisible as far as the administration is concerned, but a rich night, lively, full of laughter, fears and desires. Anquetil gives them back their visibility, ripping them out of the world of ghosts. There is no pathos here, no horrific narrative, but the recording – no less important – of their crucial economy of survival, their obstinate determination to ‘make it’ or, quite simply, to arrive at the end of such a long journey. A night lit up by images from elsewhere, from before. Anquetil’s night shots provide an appropriate background for fragile, rudimentary images, for memories, testimony of events captured randomly during the journey with their own phones. A night shot through with rays of light, as a face looms up or a chalk map drawn on the ground. But is that not part of the promise, literally speaking, of cinema, to emerge from the depths of night through its furtive incandesence? A promise modestly balanced here by the simple hope of another day dawning.(Nicolas Feodoroff)
