Apocalypse After
Bertrand Mandico
FRA 2018
38 min

For Bertrand Mandico every film is a like a séance trying to wake up the ghosts of cinema. In loud and rainbow-coloured episodes the film muses on queer sci-fi film shoots. As he reflects womanhood and eroticism, desire and disgust, Mandico looks at actresses like a drug one must consume in order to survive. Demons of lost feelings haunt the images as do filmmakers from Jean Cocteau to Joe D’Amato. In all of it waits an ontology of cinema to be deciphered. It is related to light and the need for emotions: “Films are monkeys that fuck their muses blinded by the light of projectors.” (Patrick Holzapfel)
