Documentary Film


The wastelands and crowded streets of an African country are traversed by a woman bearing a wooden cross on her back. She is followed by sellers, beggars and passersby, outraged voices, pity and curious glances. Parallel to her, among a herd of sheep, a lamb toddles its way from the far away mountains into the heart of the city, only to find itself dangling, skinned and headless, on a butcher’s shoulder. In the meantime, under the scorching sun, in a roofless house, a woman is persistently knitting a garment, unwinding a thread coiled over her son’s face. ‘Mother, I Am Suffocating. This is My Last Film About You’ is a symbolic social-political voyage of a society, spiralling between religion, identity and collective memory. “I saw in you what they saw, mother. You deserve your war”.

The mechanisms of the construction and assimilation of gender in contemporary Italian society will be observed through a kaleidoscopic mosaic of scenes of daily life: what are the choreographies of bodies, collective rituals and behaviors that determine our identities? In images with a strong visual impact, Normal tells the story of normality that makes it alien to us and explores the daily and collective staging of the male and female universe in which we all participate.

January 2016. The love story that brought me to this village in Alsace where I live ended six months ago. At 45, I am now alone, without a car, a job or any real prospects, surrounded by luxuriant nature, the proximity of which is not enough to calm the deep distress into which I am plunged. France, still in shock from the November terror attacks, is in a state of emergency. I feel helpless, I suffocate with contained rage. I am lost and I watch four to five films a day. I decide to record this stagnation, not by picking up a camera but by editing shots from the stream of films I watch.

"Beauty and decay" is a documentary about three rebels, who shine even brighter than the rest of the vibrating East Berlin boheme of the 80ies: Sven Marquardt, Dominique Hollenstein (Dome) and Robert Paris. All of them being more mystical creatures than real punks. This movie reveals how little the colorful East Berlin punk-scene had in common with the one-dimensional aesthetic of its western counterpart. The uniqueness, authenticity and offhandedness of this subculture was impressive.

Translated into Guinea-Bissau creole “parece” (“it seems”) gives “parsi”. Invented on the basis of a cumulative poem by his compatriot, Mariano Blatt, whose lines all begin with “parece que”, Eduardo Williams’ film captures the poem’s driving force – literally, driven to haste. Here is a piling-up of impressions and ideas, images that collide and spin at a staggering speed. With no illustra­tive relationship interconnecting them: Williams films far from Argen­tina, he films the familiar, intimate and political things that Blatt points to, in a Guinea-Bissau previously unknown to him but which the film allows him to explore. This funda­mental indetermination requires in return that a fluid complicity and empathy be extended to all those involved in making the film. Read in voice-over, Blatt’s text imprints its haste on the shots filmed by the actors. As in Williams’ other films, they wander around their neighbou­rhoods at an increasingly frantic pace using all means of locomotion, handling the camera themselves in a circuit that holds a thousand sur­prises. “Parsi “ could describe the astonishment that each of Williams’ films incites: the spectacle of constantly bubbling ideas, the expe­rience of simple joy in the face of a world that offers itself up in a new light and a primitive relationship to cinema where the question resonates: how all this has been filmed.
