Tous les nuages sont des horloges
All the Clouds are Clocks
The title for this showpiece of mystification is derived from Karl Popper's concept whereby clocks stand for total predictability and clouds for the opposite. Ruiz, we may assume, does not believe in this sharp distinction. In 1988, he led film students into a carefully constructed ruse: they were asked to think up and film the last chapter of a Japanese crime novel by the author Eiryo Waga, which had only been published in Italy and remained incomplete. But as we can already foresee, the novel never existed, the real author borrowed its name from another crime novel, and his real name is Raúl Ruiz. (Barbara Kronsfoth)
