Filmography
Grand Littoral, 2004

 

After Marseille in her first film, Grand Littoral, photographer Valérie Jouve was invited to shoot in Rotterdam. New skies, different urban sprawl – what organizes the pictures this time is the speed, or rather speeds, that a city decides as much to welcome as to produce. Thus, it is the rhythm of the horizons, means of transport and pedestrians that takes precedence here, from the outskirts to the city center. In the absence of voiceover, the editing and soundtrack serve as a guide for a vision that the director backs to withstand the beating of time, the metronome of the city’s work on itself.
