POUR LA MÈRE ET LA FILLE
An impressionist elegy about spring, water, light and motherly love, shot from the shoulder on Super 8. Connecting colourful snapshots and intimate scenes the film constitutes a homage to the candour, the cordiality and poetical nature of amateur films, home movies and domestic holiday shoots, which have developed over a couple of decades into conventionalised visual representations of the world. Similarly to those often overlooked cinematic styles a feeling of nostalgia and intimacy predominates here as well, a sense of affection in order to hold on to memories. Many of the stylistic characteristics are also adopted: speedy camera movements, abrupt shifts an time and space, over - and underexposure, variations in focus and exposure and jump cuts – an intuitive, musical approach to editing which transcends the lack of sound.
