Une expérience audiovisuelle particulière : en apparence, il ne s'agit que de variations de couleurs et de luminosité à travers une feuille blanche, mais les dialogues invitent à imaginer les scènes et à réfléchir sur l'artiste, la société tunisienne, la politique, la censure... Ce film aurait sûrement plus d'impact dans le cadre d'une exposition, mais la démarche vaut le coup d'œil ! (3,5 / 5)
An interesting Avant-Garde film. Was probably a little too long, the same film and same message could have been done in 10 minutes let alone 30. Usually I would not take screen time into effect, but when a film is essentially a power point presentation with audio it is something to note. I did enjoy it though, despite the length.
This is really good. My only problem with it is that because the image is mostly almost all white, it shows off every imperfection on my screen when I project it. And I use my living room wall for a screen, so it has some imperfections, though I don't usually see them. This isn't the fault of the film but I wouldn't notice it with most films. Now I need to repair my wall's blemishes and paint it with projector paint.
(.5 star) A guy places a piece of white paper over the camera lens. Then films it for 30 minutes. We don't see any of this, of course. We just see the white rectangle for 30 minutes. We also hear people talk to the filmmaker about what he's doing. He claims he's not doing anything except just filming light through a white piece of paper. If others appreciate this, good for them. To me there is no art or skill here.
This French Film directed by Isamail Bahri is a very interesting artistic experiment. Bahri does a great job not using any music, and using strictly background noise to give you an idea of the setting. Throuoght the film there is subtitles of what seems to be the French pedestrians talking and asking about what exactly he is doing. Overall very interesting film about different types of people.
The conceit to this film is too cute for my tastes. Literally looking at a blank piece of paper for half an hour is not beyond reason, but ultimately became tedious. The real charm to the film comes from how the director interacted with a number of the people. Getting them to expand on what his project meant or who he was in relation to his country. And especially turning the paper into a symbol of censorship.
"True art is one which raises questions." And how amazingly simplistic way this artistic project did! It sums up the meaning of life, art, society and death in perhaps the most (amusingly) schematic structure ever. The questioning authorities, the compelled locals, the debating ethnocentric persons and so on. All behind the intellectual thought of how an image develops through the movements of wind.
the piece of paper in front of the lens creates such an interesting image... with the colours and all... of course one wishes to see it in higher res... and that juXtaposed with the conversations and reactions adds so much more... one is able to almost like see... the thing about letting you imagine what is happening makes it of course much larger... lovely work...
