Rétrospective is Jérôme Bel’s subjective reflection on his own work. He chose eighteen dance fragments from his video archive. Through meticulous editing, he has used them to reconstruct the development of his thinking about dance. By emphasizing the links between dance and politics, he foregrounds central themes in his work. After the film screening, there will be an extended conversation with the choreographer.

Philosopher Bruno Latour and theatre maker Frédérique Aït-Touati reflect on the relationship between human beings and their environment. Can we change our perception of the earth? No longer from a great distance, like a blue marble flying through space… But from the inside out, from the wafer-thin outer layer of the globe on which all life, human activity and resources are concentrated?

Chaghig Arzoumanian is 27, but could just as well be a thousand years old. In a voice-over, she talks about her family history, and the accumulation of names, stories, journeys and photos that were handed down to her fragmentarily. In this film, she roots her Armenian heritage in today’s landscape.

The magisterial Life and Times epic is approaching its conclusion. The life story of Kristin Worrall is continuing in two films, combined into a marathon screening. Episode 7 pays tribute to Citizen Kane and the conventions of Hollywood’s black and white films. Episode 8 takes an entirely different direction, as a Cinemascope colour film with wide, uninterrupted shots. No prior knowledge is necessary: a cinematic newsflash-like introduction will concisely summarize the story so far.
