Patrick Bokanowskicolor, sound, 93 minRental format: DVD PAL
Bokanowski develops work between the traditional cinematographic genres: short film, experimental film, and animation. His manner of treating filmic material is his research at the frontier of optical and visual arts, always in an "in-between" to create. He calls into question the idea that cinema's essence should be to reproduce reality, that is, our habits of thinking and feeling. The film The Angel (1982) is his most prominent, fascinating, and obsessive work. It is accompanied by a soundtrack made by his wife, Michéle Bokanowski, and released during 2003 on a CD album by the label trAace under the title L'Ange.
