In 1928, Jean Epstein settled in Ushant, where he filmed FINIS TERRAE and L’OR DES MERS with the local population. “A century later, where are we?” ask Klotz and Perceval in NOUVEAU MONDE ! (LE MONDE À NOUVEAU).
Shot in Ushant against the backdrop of the immigration crisis and the new war in Europe, the film is a way for its makers to scrutinise the state of the world and the state of cinema in relation to history and becoming. The tension between the real and the unreal, a central aspect of Epstein’s thinking, is given formal expression via a rigorous mise-en-scène based on a dialectical grasp of time and space, long fixed and slow travelling shots that restructure the standard pattern of shot/reverse shot, non-figurative elements and the reuse of audiovisual archives, accompanied by Alain Franco’s “musical dramaturgy”. The duo’s trajectory since LA BLESSURE culminates in this “arrière-garde” film, which fractures the temporalities of history, film and narrative in launching the conditions of a “new cinema” for a “new world”. Here, cinema becomes not only the sensory marker of the contemporary, but also an instrument of political and epistemological transformation. (Raquel Schefer)
