Eric Baudelaire. Un Film Dramatique

From: Thursday, 25 November 2021

To: Sunday, 23 January 2022

Place: Sala Z

What are we doing together? It is a recurring question for the students in the film class at Dora Maar High School, as well as for Eric Baudelaire (Salt Lake City, USA, 1973), who worked with them for four years. Answering this political question –which involves representations of power, social violence and identity– led them to search for a cinematic form that would do justice not only to the uniqueness of each student, but also to the essence of their group.

What are we doing together if not a documentary or fiction? A dramatic film, perhaps, in which time works upon the bodies and discourse of the students, and in which we discover the possibility of each person speaking on their own behalf by filming for others and becoming co-authors of the film and subjects of their own lives.

Eric Baudelaire is an artist and filmmaker. His recent feature films include Also Known As Jihadi (2017), Letters to Max (2014), The Ugly One (2013) and The Anabasis of May and Fusako Shigenobu, Masao Adachi and 27 Years Without Images (2011), all of which have been widely screened at film festivals such as Locarno, Toronto, New York, Marseille and Rotterdam.

The Z Gallery (Z for zinema, cinema in Basque) programme aims to bring to the public authors interested in searching for new narrative forms by questioning the genres that historically categorise cinematographic language. 2021 season of the programme we want to highlight the interest and research deployed by their authors on the idea of the collective, as well as the ways in which to continue thinking and working together to project a shared future.
