This remarkable companion piece to In the City of Sylvia offers a compendium of images recorded by Guerín in Strasbourg while searching for the traces of a (fictional?) brief encounter some years earlier with a young woman named Sylvia.

If In the City of Sylvia brought Rohmer to mind, here the beautiful photos recall Marker. It's fascinating not only as companion to In the City of Sylvia but in its exploration of time, movement, rhythm, memory and space. Delighting in faces, the photogenic magnetic appeal of pretty women (voyeuristically followed yet unattainable). along with connections between various artforms, it reminds us of what is cinema.
