Stephane Marti

La Cite des neuf portes (1977) DVD PAL, Color, 70 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: erotic, music

The mastery of Marti explodes in LA CITE DES NEUF PORTES, where this young filmmaker constructs a rigorous work, coherent while variegated, rhythmical like a concerto, with piani and andante. In this case, a concerto for masculine bodies, often in makeup or travesty and Super-8 camera. Generally editing the film in the camera at the moment of filming, and playing on the lightness of his equipment with quasi-caresses or filmic coruscations, Marti thus reveals himself to be one of the masters of Super-8. -Dominique Noguez
