Digital. Indie Lisboa's Jem Cohen retrospective. The dispersive randomly filming, especially by inconsistent editings, which marks his later films that i know, finds here, with the trick of a fictional off device, a consistency through/with multiple senses. Dedicated to Chris Marker, it's clearly remnant of some of this filmmaker's formal procedures doing it in an inventive way.
2,5 A film impaired for me by a haphazard double bill – I'd watched Keiller’s Dilapidated Dwelling earlier. Both films muse on the mobility of/between houses, but Keiller’s probing annotations on modernity, nuclear family, household-related economics and the vestigially geocentric hang-up on a permanent home - a buoyant Parmenides stronghold within a world of global locomotion, make Cohen’s Chain hard to concatenate.
