Rue Des Teinturiers (1979) 16mm, color, 31.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Structural

Recorded frame by frame in the camera, the focus of each frame is adjusted so that certain graphic features of items in the street that gives its name to the film are extracted and inscribed onto the film strip in a way which allows their characteristics to be seen, when projected in succession on the screen, as parts of a spatiotemporal image stretching from a position on a balcony over a canalized river to the road. The film is composed of twelve two-and-three-quarter minute reels, each of which was filmed on a different day throughout a six-month period. No editing was undertaken other than joining the reels together. This was done in a slightly non-chronological order so as to avoid accentuating anecdotal aspects of the scene.
