Le Jardin de Jessé (Jesse’s garden)

2003-2004

Video, super 8 films, slides

10-12mn

A concert of sounds and voices accompanying a multiscreen projection that recreates the progress of a collective memory. The plants and characters appearing on the various screens are those mentioned by the different members of a same family evoking Tunisia and Algeria, their countries of birth. Pictures and sounds are manipulated in order to reproduce the memory process: obsessions, reminiscences, transferences, fading remembrances, changing impressions or sudden illuminations. Music by Jean-Marc Manteau. Distribution: Collectif Jeune Cinéma
