Tempus Fugit [electronic resource]

Loading...
The film is a recreation for the camera of the work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, the Flemish choreographer of Moroccan descent, and Les Ballets C. de la B. The film is set in a magnificent Moroccan palm grove. A woman is at the center of gravity, at its epicenter. The film's heroine - pursued by an invisible presence - meets a prince. The prince falls madly in love with her, but she leaves him for another. Soon however, her past catches up with her. The inspiration for Tempus Fugit lies without a doubt in the popular cinema of India with its great melodramas that blend dance, song, music and enchantment. Their complexity stems often - just as in Tempus Fugit - from the confrontation between tradition and modernity.

Reines d'un jour features six tumbling bodies on mountain slopes of the Alps, caught between heaven and Earth, among the cows and the villagers.

Dance for Camera 2 [electronic resource]

Loading...
Presents seven short dance films from around the world. Boy, considered a dance film classic, turns an ordinary boy into a superhero as he moves with stealth and grace through a dramatic coastal landscape, responding to this empty universe, manipulating it and conjuring up his own imaginary world. In Burst, a couple's intimate dance in the bedroom is interrupted by a sudden and unexpected burst water pipe; the water may be cool, but this couple burns up the screen. Cargo presents one man's pit stop on the road of life, where he pauses to rest and contemplate whether to continue the journey; sometimes dark, sometimes funny and always sexy, the performer fills the interior of a 1969 Buick Skylark with his physical and emotional self. Case Studies is a faux-scientific investigation of A [...]
