Itinéraire de Jean Bricard

Danièle Huillet, Jean-Marie Straub
FRA 2008
40min
V'16

The wonderful aspect about Straub’s work has always been the unpredictable and unexpected, forever remaining true to itself. ITINÉRAIRE DE JEAN BRICARD is a document, a land surveying, an experimental film, a history lesson and a ghost story… Cinema, as someone once said, is the last form of oral history and this film takes this literally. On an island in the Loire there was once life, people who worked, put up resistance, grew wine, and lived of the river. The film is a tender testimony that there is still something to see, to experience, of how space turns into time.
