THE LAST CONTINENT

Vincent Lapize

2015 – 77’

Feature documentary

Synopsis

Over two years, from spring 2012 until spring 2014, The Last Continent offers a subjective immersion into an evolving political experiment: the one set up by those opposed to the Great-Western Airport project in Notre-Dame-des-Landes, near Nantes in France. The film shows two portraits; one of a place, the Defended Zone, i.e. 2000 hectares of forests and prairies, and one of a few activists with diverse profiles, but who all share on a daily basis an untypical political experience.

POLLOCK & POLLOCK

Isabelle Rèbre

2019 — 90’

In postproduction

Executive producer : Colette Quesson


Synopsis

This is the story of two brothers, two American painters, Jackson and Charles Pollock. Jackson began painting under the guidance of his elder brother Charles, and quickly rose to fame. When his life is taken from him in a car accident at 44 he has already brought a revolution into the world of painting and he becomes a legend. Charles remains a man, slowly building his art. In 2015, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice presented the works of the two brothers side by side for the very first time. In the light of the family correspondence, the film explores two different ways of being an artist: it revisits a myth and draws a painter from the shadows.

COLOR-BLIND

Ben Russell

2019 – 30′

Short documentary

Filmed in Polynesia and Bretagne, France.

Synopsis

A deliriously synaesthetic S16mm portrait made between French Polynesia and Brittany, COLOR-BLIND recruits the restless ghost of Paul Gauguin as an uneasy spirit guide in excavating the colonial legacy of a decidedly syncretic post-post-colonial present. Featuring im/material guest appearances by: white-tipped reef sharks, Aldous Huxley’s Island, Marquesan techno, authorized Gauguin reproductions, Bretagne dance competitions, an illegal kava ceremony, the beach from the 4th season of Survivor, the long decay of French nuclear testing in Polynesia (1960-1996), and so much more.

Opening Text Adapted From “A letter to Mette Gauguin from Paul Gauguin, 8 Dec. 1892”.
